Veteran/First Responder Mediator
Type of Position
Open until filled
Can Praxis is an Equine Therapy program looking for a Veteran/First Responder Mediator with ample experience working with members of a subculture characterized by violence and death; this usually means working with Veterans or First Responders or in corrections. This experience will help participants accept the mediator as a credible Can Praxis Facilitator. Can Praxis is a registered charity and intends to conduct one three day program every month working with a horse arena facilitator and psychologist.
In addition, experience with horses is a definite asset and be able to provide classroom facilitation and education and/or crisis management for an individual, a couple or a group of up to 12 participants. Relevant mediation experience, horse experience and enough presence to lead and inspire a group are all necessary attributes. A non-traditional/clinical approach is required; participants do not tolerate a facilitator who relies only on studies and jargon, they would rather work with a sincere, compassionate and experienced person who can acknowledge great pain one minute and yet sometimes relieve tension with some well-timed humor.
Can Praxis is also putting together a Family Program and is seeking child psychologists and family social workers to implement this new program.
