Trauma-Informed Practice

The Mane Intent programming is guided by trauma-informed practice and principles, recognizing the impact of violence and trauma on people’s lives and health.

These principles include:

  • Acknowledgement that trauma is pervasive
  • Safety
  • Trust
  • Choice and control
  • Compassion
  • Collaboration
  • Strengths-based

Our belief is that relationship and skills gained through working in partnership with horses as natural coaches can help people better cope with life stressors, develop greater resilience, and reconnect with themselves and others, ultimately moving towards post-trauma growth.
