Equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning seminar at Wolfe Ranch
The O.K. Corral is coming to Marshalltown to present its equine-assisted certification to the public Sept. 8-10. The seminar will be hosted by Quakerdale Family Services/Wolfe Ranch (located on Highway 30 outside Marshalltown), and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
For more than 20 years, Greg Kersten, president of the O.K. Corral Series and Founder of the field of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, has been certifying therapists and regular, everyday people to use horses in the fields of mental health and wellness.
The seminar encourages attendees to look beyond horsemanship, irrational fears and biases by promoting the use of astute observation, nonverbal communication and good old common sense. The seminar also provides fun and insightful equine-assisted activities that can help to “Make Every Day O.K.” in the lives of participants, or even start them on a new career path. What does it cost to be certified by the O.K. Corral? Lunches and materials are included in the price of $1,275 for the three-day event (group discount available).
The O.K. Corral Series provides workshops, resources and information to practitioners of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Equine Assisted Learning and Equine-Assisted Wellness. The O.K. Corral typically travels to 24 different locations worldwide each year to certify folks in this innovative approach to wellness and mental health.
