Trinity Helps Teen Girls by Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)

Trinity Teen Solutions understands that you want to help your teen girl who struggles with life-controlling issues, and we’re here to help at our safe, licensed residential treatment center in scenic Wyoming.

For many, teen years are some of the most difficult in life. Their bodies go through changes, relationships become complex. We begin to learn social roles, and more than ever our children are expected to grow up earlier. These changes may leave a teenager feeling helpless, confused and pessimistic about the future. 

It is possible that Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy can reach clients where traditional therapy cannot. This is a powerful and effective approach that has lasting impact on young people, families and groups.  

Building powerful relationships with the horses helps troubled teens learn key relational skills and tools that translate to healthy relationships with peers, parents, and authority figures. Horses are very unique and they can read people better than people read one another. Therapists use the experience between an adolescent and the horse to find new ways to provide powerful therapeutic intervention. The interaction between the teen and the horse helps them become self-aware of issues that cause stagnation and confusion. 

Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy is one of our most effective and innovative modalities for addressing a wide range of therapeutic needs in teen girls. Through interactions with horses and with help from equine therapists, our young teens discover and explore behaviors and relationship patterns that have become problematic in their day-to-day lives. The very size and strength of the horses can stir deeply buried emotions while simultaneously affording opportunities to identify and resolve practical matters of communication, empathy and basic interpersonal respect. Interactions with the horses can also bring up thoughts and behavior patterns related to the issues that have brought families seeking treatment for their teen girl at Trinity Teen Solutions. 

 Equine therapy ushers in the learning experience of: 

  • Self-worth and personal integrity 
  • Evaluation and establishment of healthy relationships 
  • Effective communication 
  • Addiction recovery 
  • Eating disorder recovery 
  • The value of trust and respect in relationships 
  • The dynamics of power in relationships (e.g., bullying vs. equity) 
  • Assertiveness vs. aggressiveness 
  • Respect for diversity and individuality 
  • The importance of teamwork and community 
  • Healing from trauma 

Trinity Teen Solutions provides a safe, nurturing environment where your teen girl can heal and grow. Our evidenced-based therapy and Christian program ultimately strives to heal her mind, body and soul, as well as instill integrity, accountability, responsibility and character.
