Can Praxis Psychologist requirement

Can Praxis is an Equine Therapy  program looking for a psychologist with ample experience working with members of a subculture characterized by violence and death; this usually means working with Veterans or First Responders or in corrections.  This experience will help participants accept the psychologist as a credible service provider.  Can Praxis is a registered charity and intends to conduct one three day program every month working with a classroom facilitator and mediator.


In addition, he or she needs to have experience with horses.  This means being certified as an Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) facilitator or willing to become certified.  While doing EAL, be able to provide psychological therapy and/or crisis management for an individual, a couple or a group of up to 12 participants.  The psychological work is normally conducted in a seamless fashion alongside a horse.  Practical matters need to be managed concurrently, for example: stable management, movement of horses and equipment, organizing participants to do light barn related duties.


Relevant clinical experience, horse experience and enough presence to lead and inspire a group are all necessary attributes.  A non-traditional/clinical approach is required; participants do not tolerate a psychologist who relies only on studies and jargon, they would rather work with a sincere, compassionate and experienced person who can acknowledge great pain one minute and yet sometimes relieve tension with some well-timed humor.
