Can Praxis - Equine Rehabilitation Programs for Veterans Diagnosed with PTSDUnresolved conflict destroys relationships, and is especially common in overly stressed families. Can Praxis trains Canadian Armed Forces veterans and their spouses, suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to manage their conflict effectively through a combination of theoretical and practical exercises. The theoretical foundation for this is Managing Differences by Dan Dana PhD. From the classroom, Can Praxis then moves the participants in to the practical by using walk-along exercises with horses as a training aid. As a 'flight' animal they react to human body language. Horses react to what they see; it is their body language that speaks volumes about humans in their proximity. As EAL facilitators, Can Praxis offers a translation the horses' behavior to participants in order to increase their own self-awareness and promote the healing process. Can Praxis is collaboration between Steve Critchley and Jim Marland. Steve is a 28 year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces and, an international mediator, facilitator, negotiator, and trainer. Jim is a registered psychologist, Equine Assisted Learning Facilitator, mountaineer, sailor, corporate trainer and a professional speaker.
