More Episodes

We are in a period of digital disruption, and, as we like to say, “You are either being disrupted, or you are the disruptor.” Normally during The Disruptor Segment of The Apex Podcast, we discuss experiences and stories from the field that will empower any burgeoning entrepreneurs to deepen their design thinking practice and any naysayers to give it a second look. 

 

During this segment of The Disruptor, Jan and John diverge slightly and decided to “disrupt” our normal format and host a panel discussion of four Equine-Assisted Services (EAS) experts who explore how the Horses & Humans Research Foundation (HHRF) funded grants have supported research on the benefits of Horse – Human interaction with Veterans with PTSD and students who have experienced trauma.

 

We think trauma is an extreme example of disruption and many of us have experienced some form of trauma in 2020 and 2021. We start the show by exploring how and why equine therapy services help trauma patients. This is followed by a discussion on how grant requests from HHRF support the continued research.

 

The panel moderators consist of Pebbles Turbeville, the Executive Director of  Horses & Humans Research Foundation, and Tara Mahone, the CEO & Founder of Equine Immersion Project, LLC. Together they facilitate an excellent discussion on the serious and tough subject of Disrupting and Preventing Suicide through Equine-Assisted Services (EAS) for PTSD and Trauma Patients with Debbi Fisher, the Operations and Training Director for Hope for Heroes Equine Therapy Consulting and Hope for Heroes Horsemanship Center and Martha McNiel, the Director of DreamPower Horsemanship.

 

We are also excited to have this show hosted by the Horses & Humans Research Foundation, an organization that is a catalyst in advancing global knowledge of horse-human interactions and their impact on health and wellness, and their October 2021 conference about Horses and Humans Research.
