The Relationship Between Supervisor Leadership Qualities and Home-based Clinician Burnout

Sarah Gates (2009)

Results of this study suggest that the girls' relationship with their trainer, the horse and the barn community positively impacted their identity and emerging sense of self. Clinical implications of this study indicate that adolescent girls benefit from stable, reliable, consistent environments. This idea is applicable for professionals that work with adolescent girls in a variety of environments including teachers, coaches and clinicians. Future research considerations include exploring how girls' involvement with the barn community impacts their relationships with peers and family as well as examining a broader array of demographic variables.
