Son Connection

Anger, resentment and frustration stem from either a misunderstanding or a miscommunication.  Nearly every time, if the ‘unknown’ is explored, the conflict is avoided and temperatures are much cooler.  It makes it particularly difficult if both you and your son are not unpacking this ‘unknown’ and your communication is suffering.  This is when animal assisted learning intervenes.   The animals contribute to observations and help participants ‘see’ their behaviours.. Technology is changing how we communicate and sometimes sharing feelings and thoughts can feel hard to do in person.  It may feel as though your teenager is living in another world and you may be wondering how you both are becoming disconnected. These two days will help work through those struggles and offer tools for you both moving forwards.

About this workshop

This weekend’s focus is learning how thoughts and feelings shape experiences and behaviours, understanding and learning how to communicate with each other to build connections and take-home tools and strategies that will help calm any situation. 

Working with horses teaches us all compassion, empathy, self-discipline and understanding as we care for the horse and interact with them.  Together, and through participating in specially designed activities with the horses, you build your connection, supporting each other and growing your understanding of how both of you communicate.

Time with horses and time together in this open nature-based environment compliments the strength of the relationship between a parent and son.
