1. Gain foundational knowledge for the practice of EALT

OVERVIEW: Equine assisted learning and therapy (EALT) has been growing in popularity over the last few years to address treatment goals including rehab and mental health. For a recreation therapist, it presents an opportunity to offer new interventions for clients, especially those who are not progressing in traditional interventions. Recently the VA offered grant awards to recreation therapists for collaborative EALT programs for veterans. This grant was expanded this year congress announced 5 million dollars in funding specifically for equine assisted interventions for veterans. For RT’s it can be challenging to weed your way through what is out there and separating fact from fiction. In this session we will cover:

· The basic theoretical framework of EALT

· The benefits of this type of intervention

· Appropriate clients and populations

· Contraindications and guidelines for practice

· The differences between the types of EALT interventions

ATRA Webinar | Risk Factors & Evidence Based Responses to Suicide

Veterans Replay 2018: Risk Factors and Evidence-Based Responses to Suicide and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury in Veterans


SPEAKER: Deborah A. Tysor, MS, TRS, CTRS


  • Identify at least two risk factors for suicide in the veteran population
  • Define non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and distinguish between NSSI and suicidal behavior
  • Identify the four primary functions of NSSI and identify at least one evidence-based RT intervention that addresses the primary functions of NSSI


OVERVIEW: This webinar will discuss suicide risk factors among veterans, explain the difference between suicidal behavior and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), and discuss evidence-based ways to understand and effectively respond to NSSI. First, NSSI will be defined and distinguished from suicidal behaviors. Recommendations will be made regarding recreational therapists’ use of language and how to provide evidence-based responses to suicidal behavior in clinical settings. Next, a review of suicide risk factors that are specific to the veteran population will be provided. An emphasis will be placed on common mental health conditions and diagnostic comorbidities that increase vulnerability. Finally, the presenter will discuss the motivating factors behind NSSI and provide suggestions for how to offer evidence-based interventions to effectively address NSSI in recreational therapy settings.

SPEAKER: Lauren Lessard, CTRS, M.Ed
Rachel Keyworth, CTRS


  • Students/Professionals will identify the stigmatization of female veterans with disabilities living in an able-bodyist culture
  • In what ways do female veterans with disabilities view or cope with their disabilities?
  •  Students/Professionals will understand how the development of positive and negative self-identity influences the participation of female veterans in adaptive sports
  • Students/Professionals will acknowledge the support of socializing agents and agencies of the female veteran as they impact the athlete’s interpretation of disability and involvement in sport
  • Students/Professionals will gain a better understanding of the Leisure Ability, Flourishing
  • Through Leisure, and Health Promotion Models as it relates to the topic


OVERVIEW: The session will focus on the self-identity and social theories associated with the triple threat phenomenon. The triple threat phenomenon highlights the barriers appointed to female veterans with disabilities participating in adaptive sports. “Breaking Down the Triple Threat Barrier” will explore the following: why veteran females with disabilities struggle to find adaptive sport opportunities and continue to face challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated society as well as provide a closer look into a disability in an able-bodied culture. The session will identify the roles in which agents and agencies play in the development of the female veteran. As well as the values, morals, norms, and perceptions in which female veterans with disabilities attach to self-identity and social structure. An explanation of the Leisure Ability, Flourishing Through Leisure and the Health Promotion Models will be used to explore theories to gain a better understanding of the foundational knowledge and resources for female veterans with a disability.
