New publication: Wow, my teacher is a horse!
In ‘Wow, my teacher is a horse!’, scientifically based theory and practical examples clearly explain how the horse can play a role in strengthening executive functions through experiential learning. Since 2004, author Paulien Rutgers has been working in horse-assisted interventions which aim to encourage children with specific needs to develop their strengths and abilities. More than half of these children suffer from school dropout and/or risky behaviour. They need support for one or more executive functions, with feedback to their family and school. Horses have a positive effect on the learning ability, the self-reflection and the awareness of these children. In this book, Paulien Rutgers brings together all her experience and the results of her search for the explanation of the effect that horses have on the behaviour and cognition of the target group.
Wow, My Teacher is a Horse! will be available in the FriesenPress Bookstore soon.
