Quantitative evaluation of the impact of the IFEEL Method of Equine Facilitated Pyschotraumatology (EFPT) intervention using the Clinical Outcome in Routine Evaluation Outcome Measure (CORE – OM)

Quantitative Evaluation

The use of horses within human mental health services has occurred since the 1950s (Wang et al, 2015). Equine human interventions are increasing in popularity within human counselling and behavioural development programmes. However, despite this, few evidence based studies evaluating the impact of these studies on their human participants exist.

RESEARCH AIM – To measure the impact of a 3-day EFPT programme on participants’ psychological health using an established tool: the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation Outcome Measure (CORE-OM) (Evans et al, 2000)
