Four Seasons to Sponsor 'Healing with Horses' A Teen Grief Support Camp

| From
Heart Songs Program

FLAT ROCK, N.C., Oct. 3, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A unique opportunity for grieving teenagers, using the assistance of horses in group therapy, will be held on two consecutive Saturdays, October 19 and October 26, 2013. The camp, hosted at Cantrell Farm in Mills River, N.C. is offered by the Heart Songs Program at Four Seasons Compassion for Life.

Camp expenses are sponsored by Four Seasons. Upon arrival at camp, the teens will meet their four-legged therapists and begin to explore their individual grief issues through specially planned activities. Horse-riding skills are not required to participate in this camp.

During the two days of sharing and learning, through this established form of experiential therapy with horses, the teens will have a unique opportunity to explore their grief experiences without judgment or criticism.

Together the teens will learn new coping skills for their grief journeys and gain confidence to deal with their changing worlds. The sessions are facilitated throughout both days by a trained equine specialist and therapist, and a hospice bereavement counselor.

Teens, ages 13-19, and who have experienced the loss of a significant loved one, are eligible and encouraged to apply. Teens must be able to commit to both Saturdays.
