Wellness Wednesdays

  Sunnyside Farms and local organizations offering behavioral health services are partnering to provide integrative health for kids at-risk in our community.  Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is the combined use of horses, a licensed therapist and a horse specialist working with clients to address various individual psychotherapy treatment goals. This unique method enables clients to learn about themselves and others by actually participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors and patterns. The presence of a horse is considered “therapeutic” in itself, since it is a dynamic and powerful living being. There’s also a healing bond that can develop between humans and horses. EAP utilizes this relationship with the horse as a tool to mirror client’s experiences and facilitate change. Sunnyside has the special horses to provide these connections and Wendy Bauwens is the equine specialist to facilitate it.

Sunnyside’s farm gates will be open every Wednesday June through September

to help kids-at-risk in our community.
