Deborah Judge: Spiritus Equis – A psychiatrist’s journey: How horses help people in trauma recovery

Speaker: Deborah Judge

Deborah will illustrate how, in following a career in psychiatry, and working with mental health and trauma, the observations and experiences with horses along the way form useful connections and opportunities for learning. This journey with horses may help in our understanding of trauma and recovery.
