With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding in-person events, we’ve decided to take our roadshows online. Please see below our online events for 2021 – available to book now!

5 things relating to mental health that everyone in veterinary practice should know

Event Date: 13/05/2021
Location: Online
Start Time: 1:00 pm
End Time: 2:30 pm

Whilst veterinary practice is often a thrilling and enjoyable environment to work in, it is also an emotionally unsettling environment. This is because delivering veterinary service and care incorporates many of the themes that lead to unsettled emotional weather, a state otherwise known as dysphoria. Like unsettled weather patterns, feelings of dysphoria are inevitable – and indeed beneficial – at least to some degree. Similarly, they can pass quickly or hang around for longer than is comfortable and even become as established as an adverse climate of compromised mental health.

This webinar is kindly sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and will take place in support of Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16th May 2021).

The psychology of 'Having a quiet word' with misbehaving colleagues

Event Date: 17/06/2021
Location: Online
Start Time: 10:00 am
End Time: 3:00 pm

This day is relevant to anyone who finds the ‘people-management’ part of veterinary practice uncomfortable.   Many managers tolerate unexpected or undesired colleague behaviour for too long and allow molehills to turn into mountains which could have been resolved by ‘Having a quiet word’ earlier.  At the same time we don’t want to jump down people’s throat’s for every misdemeanour; the challenge is to deal with issues proportionally – and informally.  The sessions will look at how we can prevent frustrating behaviour using many of the day-to-day management processes that represent a 'soft' approach to learning and development. We will also cover why various personality types are better at having – and receiving - a quiet word if needed.  We will look at how to have a difficult conversation but in a constructive manner and how to decide if, when, and how to escalate your approach to a more formal disciplinary process.

Why do I just not like talking about money?

Event Date: 22/07/2021
Location: Online
Start Time: 10:00 am
End Time: 3:00 pm

This day is relevant to anyone who finds the ‘money-part’ of veterinary clinical practice uncomfortable.   I call the discomfort associated with thinking about, talking about, and charging as expected, Econophobia.   Econophobia exists for various reasons – the main reason is a sense of not feeling worth the prices we are being asked to charge.  Other causes include what I call the Compassion Paradox.  Some vets feel that having to charge for acts of kindness somehow undermines the authenticity of that sentiment of the care provided.  The sessions will cover the underlying psychology of econophobia as well as providing some simple tips about how to charge for our services in ways that strike clients as fair and simple.
