Donate today to our Equine Therapy Program.
Help children and adolescents with trauma histories and emotional challenges.
Justice Resource Institute (JRI) Community Based Services programs and Furnace Brook Farm, are proud to announce our partnership created to provide Equine Facilitated Therapy for Complex Trauma (EFT-CT). EFT-CT is an animal assisted therapeutic model developed by JRI specifically designed for children and adolescents with trauma histories and social/emotional challenges. Using a combination of EFT-CT and JRI's Attachment,Regulation, and Competency (ARC) trauma-informed framework, youth involved engage in a unique, farm based, treatment model. In addition to providing therapeutic sessions, in both mounted and non-mounted models,the farm also works with rescue horses who themselves have often had traumatic histories of abuse or neglect.
