The Mongolian Horse, The Girl and The Therapist
In this loving and humorous book The Mongolian Horse, The Girl and The Therapist, Hesther Selbeck describes in a style that is at times reminiscent of Bridget Jones’s diary, her work as a Systemic Therapist in the youth mental health care system. How she developed the innovative Contextual Horse Therapy (CHT) after a horseback trek through Mongolia, in which she focuses on horses as a co-therapist for young people with complex psychiatric behavior and their parents.
