    Location: Spirit Song Youth Equestrian Academy, 840 Spirit Song Way,  Anna, Texas 75409  (Note: GPS address is 10262 County Road 290)

    Website:  www.ssyea.com

    Course Description: This course is a 3 day small group hands-on class to assist students who want to utilize E3A's approach to Personal Development & Wellbeing workshops.  We will take you step-by-step through the workshop planning and delivery process.  You will learn how to design personal development workshops to address issues such as:

    • Self-awareness and self-discovery
    • Dealing with change
    • Overcoming obstacles
    • Boundaries
    • Life balance
    • Limiting beliefs
    • Goal-setting
    • Communication
    • Overcoming fear
    • Building self-confidence
    • Values clarification
    • Authenticity
    • And much more, including how to work with special populations, such as parent, youth groups, recovery groups, etc. 

    Facilitating Personal Development & Wellbeing workshops can be tricky because the powerful work with the horses can lead your clients deeply into their own personal issues.  

    • We'll show you how to facilitate the issues that arise without getting into psychotherapy territory.  (Hint: It's all about the question and your focus).   
    • Find out how to utilize the E3A Transformative Model presented in the E5 teleclass.  
    • See in action how the E3A Facilitation Method has been augmented to allow you to target personal development & wellbeing issues. 
    • We'll also introduce new horse activities and ways to modify existing horse activities for Personal Development & Wellbeing workshops.

    NOTE:  This is an enrichment class, and does not result in any sort of certification.

    Because E3A believes that doing Personal Development & Wellbeing workshops requires advanced facilitation skills, the following are prerequisites for taking this course:

    • E5: Introduction to Personal Development & Wellbeing teleclass AND
    • Level I E3A Certified Practitioner status

     OR

    • E5: Introduction to Personal Development & Wellbeing teleclass AND
    • The following classes:  C1: Introduction to the Equine Experiential Education Facilitation Method teleclass,

    • C3: Advanced Equine Experiential Education Facilitation (or their equivalents--call if you are not sure)

    • The following classes:  C1: Introduction to the Equine Experiential Education Facilitation Method teleclass, C2: Foundations of Equine Experiential Education Facilitation (or their equivalents) AND
    • Certification by another EAL organization or trainer (e.g. PATH, EAGALA, O K Corral, EPONA, EGEA, Kathy Pike, Innovative Horizons, etc.) (If you are not sure if your certification meets the requirements, please email us at staff@e3assoc.org so that we can review the program). 

     Please contact us at 775-386-2530 or email us at staff@e3assoc.org with any questions.
