In the professional realm, Rebecca and Reccia have been partnering for the last 5 years to tackle the gap in application of learning between healthy relational practices with humans and those with horses. This is where their interest and focus on horses and dissociation took flight. They have worked together and with other professionals in the field, learning about various approaches, theories, and methods to better understand the signs our horses are showing that they are not fully present, aware, or willingly participating (cooperating in NL terms) in relation to their environment and others. Their ongoing experiences with therapy clients and horses continue to endlessly deepen their understanding and abililty to recognize and help others recongnize, name, and treat detrimental forms of dissociation.
