Equine assisted therapy - coping with post traumatic stress

"There's a serious lack of educational programs that assist military personnel and their families in making the smoothest possible transition from the battlefield to life back home," says Linda Kohanov, founder/director of the Epona International Study Center, which teaches emotional fitness, relationship, nonverbal communication and leadership skills, in part through working with horses. "Many of these servicemen and women have the endurance, intelligence, and discipline to become tremendous assets to this country, but their lack of training in emotional fitness and social intelligence skills becomes a significant hindrance to long term success. Children also suffer from the resulting instability in family life, making the psychological wounds of war a multi-generational phenomenon."
Recognizing that funding sources tend to favor people with severe clinical depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Linda and her colleagues have created the Merlin's Spirit Memorial Fund for returning military personnel, veterans and their families. Named for Linda's stallion Midnight Merlin and his son Spirit, the program teaches people advanced personal and professional relationship skills, empowerment, and resilience in the face of traumatic events.
When Linda met Merlin in 1999, he was a stunning black stallion with tremendous untapped potential, but early training made him so dangerous and unpredictable that he had to be kept in an isolated corral. "Some techniques used in training show horses are the same techniques that were traditionally used for war horses," she reveals. "In the wrong hands, these practices become abusive, creating volatile, rage-filled horses. In rehabilitating Merlin, I realized that he had many of the symptoms that veterans with PTSD report, a frightening combination of power, energy and hyper-vigilance leading to explosive outbursts of anger followed by an almost unbearable combination of vulnerability, confusion and shame for his actions. He threatened my life several times, but something in his eyes kept me from giving up on him. Merlin and Spirit
In teaching the frustrated stallion how to respectfully integrate into a herd, Linda tapped what she calls a "fierce sensitivity" in herself and her mares. She learned to set strong yet compassionate boundaries with Merlin while helping him break the cycle of rage and shame that kept him isolated from humans as well as other horses. And she began teaching these same skills to people through activities with gentler, specially trained horses, chronicling her experiences in three best-selling books.

(Primary Instructor: Linda Kohanov) Teaches the Eponaquest Approach to equine-facilitated learning emphasizing safe, un-mounted activities with horses that facilitate self-reflection, self-mastery, relationship skills, and emotional and social intelligence skills that lead clients to greater self-confidence, creativity, personal empowerment, and satisfaction in life and work. Those who graduate from this program also receive the special designation of POH Instructor (Power of the Herd Instructor) as Linda prepares apprentices to teach the 12 Power of the Herd Guiding Principles introduced in her new book.
