FARM-BASED THERAPY TRAININGS

FOR TEACHERS AND NURSES- therapeutic self-care workshops and retreats available upon request.

FOR THERAPISTS-

Farm Based Therapy Principles learn how to incorporate plants, animals, and especially horses, into the healing process.

Contact the Children's Home Society Training Institute for future training dates.

The Children's Home Society Partners with WSCF to offer trainings to therapists in the Treasure Valley.

Authentic Farm Care Experience

Pygmy goats, chickens, ducks, ponies, horses and other animals teach patience, kindness, and empathy. Planting and growing edibles and herbs connects us to the earth and grounds us in calming ways.

Animal-Assisted Therapy

Licensed Therapists work with children and adults to support healing and growth using farm-based and animal-assisted psychotherapy.

Therapeutic Programs

Goat Training (aka "Kid Training" Leadership)

Girls Leadership with Horses

Music Therapy Groups

Art at the Farm Workshops

Mindfulness & Yoga

The Resilient Herd Experience for "Helping" Professionals

Community Engagement

Opportunities for children, teens, adults & groups to volunteer on the farm enable the community to connect with nature and serve the non profit. Everyone benefits! The Rotary Club, Girl Scouts and local churches have all helped the Warm Springs Care Farm in unique ways.
