Berkshire HorseWorks Gets Grant to Support COVID-19 Responders

RICHMOND, Mass. — Berkshire HorseWorks Inc. has received $10,000 from the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund for Berkshire County to support the "Healers and Horses" Program.
 
The program was created specifically to help local health-care workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic acclimate and reintegrate during and after their experiences dealing with the virus. The program's goal is to provide a safe platform where participants can identify, explore and process their feelings in a mutually supportive environment among other health-care workers and family. 
 
Exercises will address trauma, offer outlets for expression and develop positive coping skills healthcare workers can use while still in the midst of the crisis. Berkshire HorseWorks uses the Eagala Model of equine-assisted psychotherapy, which will be used in the "Healers and Horses" program. It integrates horses in ground-based, metaphorical activities and is facilitated by a licensed mental health professional and equine specialist.
