In the context of this global health crisis, PsicoCaeliam has launched a pioneering initiative under the slogan 'Sanando la Sanidad' (Healing Health) in gratitude for the effort and dedication of health personnel in their fight against Covid-19. Thus, it offers free psychological and therapeutic accompaniment workshops with horses for this group.
Promote the well-being of people through brief psychotherapy and with horses.
Through the implementation of psychotherapeutic workshops, the group of health workers will be able to access sessions specifically programmed and designed for them with very special dynamics, in open-air environments and with horses. Sessions are always developed within the cognitive-behavioral theoretical framework, in which they will be supported to manage any trauma they might have experienced during the Covid-19 crisis.
The therapy with the horses, performed it in the open air, can be of high therapeutic impact for these professionals, because after spending hours between four walls and in 'contaminated' spaces, the feeling of freedom will give them a powerful dose of well-being.
