The Australasian Association for Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine-Assisted Learning Inc. or AA-EAP-EAL will serve as the professional body for equine-assisted psychotherapy, counselling, mental health, and experiential learning practice.
Our members are drawn from disciplines as diverse as psychology, social work, counselling, and, special education, organisational development and horsemanship coaches. In each case, our common ground is drawing on the extraordinary results we can achieve when we partner with horses in therapeutic and experiential learning processes.
Our purpose is to set the standard for practice across Australasia and build acceptance for its role in healthcare and education. The AA-EAP-EAL will serve as a professional meeting point for practitioners across the region, developing new knowledge, creating standards of best practice and promoting the valuable work we do.
