This study<br />describes the practice of equine assisted couples therapy in terms of practitioner<br />characteristics, approach to treatment, therapeutic goals and outcomes. Mental health<br />professionals currently using equine assisted psychotherapy to treat couples share their<br />experiences and perspectives to provide an overview of this emerging modality. MS
