canine and horse riding therapy

in the social rehabilitation.

 

             The foundation "Centrs Valdardze" implements a project "Animal therapy for social rehabilitation of abused children" from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015 (contract No. 2012.EEZ/PP/1/MAC/153/034). Among partners are family and children’s crisis centre "Paspārne", Talsi regional crisis centre, EKT Horse riding school and AS pet park.

             The innovative social rehabilitation programme of canine therapy and horse riding therapy was developed and implemented by cooperation of specialists from "Centrs Valdardze", family and children’s crisis centre "Paspārne", Talsi regional crisis centre and canine and horse riding therapy specialists, including specialists from Norway. The experience for implementation of canine and horse riding therapy services was gained in knowledge exchange at EKT Horse riding school and AS pet park. A seminar on the importance of canine and horse riding therapy for social rehabilitation of abused children was conducted for the employees of the crisis centres. The crisis centres have successfully included canine and horse riding therapy in the social rehabilitation.

             Extension of social rehabilitation services by the innovative approach of canine and horse riding therapy will considerably improve the psycho-emotional condition of the abuse victims and increase their self-confidence. That will help to integrate the victims into society. The project is financially supported by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
