Summary or Abstract : This dissertation explored the relatively new approach to experiential psychotherapy known as Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP) or Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). For the purposes of this study, EFP/EAP was defined as a therapeutic approach in which a licensed or otherwise legally sanctioned mental health professional works with clients in the company of an equine for all or some of the time spent in psychotherapy. The research was divided into two parts. In the first part, 30 female and 5 male psychotherapists, aged 30 to 62, who had been practicing EFP/EAP for at least 1 year completed a questionnaire. The second part of the project consisted of in-depth semistructured interviews of 15 of the psychotherapists who had completed the questionnaire. Through the questionnaire and interviews I sought to answer three questions regarding the topic: (a) How is EFP/EAP being conducted at this time; (b) what are the major benefits and clinical outcomes of EFP/EAP as perceived by the therapists, and how are these benefits and outcomes effected; and (c) why do psychotherapists choose to work with equines? A combination of a heuristic and grounded theory method was used. Results showed a wide variety of ways psychotherapists implement their practice of EFP/EAP. However, there was substantial agreement in what the equine brings to the therapeutic encounter: unique equine attributes, opportunities for metaphor, and relational aspects. The participants demonstrated a consensus in the belief that this approach can be beneficial to a large spectrum of populations. Many clinicians alluded to transpersonal benefits including somatic aspects, a calming effect, and equines assisting clients in being attentive and totally present to the moment. The intersubjective field was seen as a way in which all EFP/EAP could be perceived. I concluded that each style of working with equines demonstrated two to four major types of five intersubjectivities---as context, as resonance, as phenomenology, as relationship, and as spirit.*.
