Monty Roberts, founder of Join-Up® International, and the Board of Directors of the California non-profit corporation, announce two more dates in 2016: September 30-October 2, and December 9-11.
Monty Roberts, renowned horse gentler, began running free-of-charge, resilience-building workshops for veterans and their families in 2010. The three-day program involves working closely with horses. The individuals and horses develop a special bond built upon mutual trust and respect. Join-Up offers everyone an effective tool to rediscover themselves through the eyes of the horse. This self-awareness exercise deals effectively with emotional trauma, anti-social behavior, withdrawal, anger, stress and Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI).
Roberts holds two Ph.Ds in Behavioral Sciences. In these workshops, he demonstrates the deep healing power of establishing a trusting relationship with horses without the use of force. Roberts assists veterans as they learn to develop a partnership with the horse. After three transformational days, veterans can better understand how to control their anger, confront painful memories, cope with real-life situations, and move on with their lives and relationships.
"Because the Horse Sense and Healing clinics are free-of-charge to veterans, donations and grants are critical to help Join-Up International put more deserving veterans and their families through the program," said Debbie Loucks, Director of Development. She urged those who want to learn more to go to www.join-up.org/veterans .
