All Kinds of News for June 07, 2017
Uinta Academy is excited to announce that the movie "Girl on the Edge" will be released June 1st at Walmart stores nationwide. Released in 2015, this movie has garnered rave reviews and won 13 awards for its depiction of how trauma and bullying affect society. The film was directed by Jay Silverman, written by Joey Curtis (screenplay) and stars Taylor Spretiler, as Hannah Green, as the girl in treatment.
It is largely based on the Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), a type of experiential therapy offered at Uinta Academy. The movie depicts three EAP concepts used at Uinta Academy: horse ownership, riding and equine individual and group therapy and shows how a relationship of trust and connection can be forged through equine therapy.
