Going Beyond Compassion Fatigue
Wed 11/18 @ 7 pm and Fri 11/20 @ 4 pm
Compassion fatigue is a normal consequence of working in a profession like veterinary medicine where you are constantly exposed to the pain and suffering of others. Daily you witness it from your patients, clients and even each other. And 2020 has certainly brought with it many additional contributing factors. This webinar will teach my best tools to go beyond compassion fatigue so you can continue doing the work you love and making a difference in the lives of your patients, clients and each other.
Managing Stress and Anxiety During a Pandemic
Wed 12/2 @ 7 pm and Fri 12/4 @ 4 pm
Our brains don't know the difference between actual and perceived threats. 2020 has certainly given us some of both! Pandemic practice has alone created so much stress and anxiety not to mention the current state of the world around us. It's a lot to handle.
Learning how to self-regulate is one of the most important keys to mental health and wellbeing but yet most of us haven't actually been taught HOW, This webinar will teach you the HOW. HOW to calm your mind, body and spirit no matter what is going on around you.
When Clients Bite: Dealing with Difficult Clients
Wed 12/16 @ 7 pm and Fri 12/18 @ 4 pm
Let's face it, everyone is super-stressed these days! It's not an easy time for humans, let alone pet owners. Curbside service is inconvenient and inefficient for you and it's a drag for your client's too. When humans are stressed, afraid or anxious they don't always behave their best.
This webinar won't change your clients but it will change how YOU think and respond to "difficult clients". And ultimately, that's all that ever needs to change.
How Being Judgmental of Self and Others Harms Us
Wed 1/6 @ 7 pm and Fri 1/8 @ 4 pm
We humans are judgmental by nature, especially in vet med. That doesn't make us bad people, it makes us human. You want the best for your patients and our current situation doesn't always make it easy to effectively communicate with one another.
This webinar will teach you 3 ways to release judgment of yourself, your clients and each other so you can approach them all with compassion instead of judgment. And that is when we can really make an impact on others!
