The Eagala Model

Horses in the Room: The Horsepath Therapeutic Cards
Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm Eastern time (18:00 GMT)

This interactive webinar will present and practice the use of therapeutic cards. Based on pictures of a herd of wild horses that live in the Basin Desert in Utah, USA, the cards’ purpose is to deepen the therapeutic process when working with the Eagala Model. The cards contain 76 pictures that capture a wide range of situations in the herd’s life while living in their natural habitat, and were chosen to enable clients to use them as metaphors to situations encountered in life.

We will discuss the theoretical foundations of working with therapeutic cards (positive psychology, the narrative approach) and the methodology to incorporate working with the cards to strengthen the therapeutic process in general, and in using the Eagala Model.

We will demonstrate how using the therapeutic cards when working with the Eagala Model can help the facilitator better understand the client’s inner world, motivate and strengthen the client’s ability to take responsibility for the process, and help both facilitator and the client process in a different and direct way what happened in the arena with the real horses.
