There are numerous barriers to entry into the efp field – including expense, availability of facilities, a lack of experience either clinically or with equines, and opportunities to practice this technique.  Since opening our doors, there have been many students and practitioners who have voiced interest in learning how to do equine facilitated psychotherapy.  All have complained that opportunities are limited and frequently expensive.

The internship program was started in 2012 in collaboration with UNH in the hopes that we could provide more opportunities for students to get their “hands wet” in this emerging field.  Our first intern joined us in the fall of 2012. The dual degree program of outdoor education and master in social work has proved to be a fantastic match with the experiential nature of this work.  However, we are always interested in working with students who have interest in this field.  Our ultimate goal is to have others in this area doing this kind of work.

If you are interested in an internship here at Wild Irish Farm, please contact Laura. Opportunities may be available not only for students working towards their masters, but also for clinicians looking for a chance to try their hands at efp.
