Why There Needs To Be An “I” In Team: Self-Care For The Veterinary Professional
In this discussion we will discuss the tendency of veterinary professionals to put themselves on the back burner regarding care. We will go over how not practicing and being mindful of self-care contribute to our mental, physical and professional deterioration. We will discuss the romanticism of self-care and how taking a real-life approach betters our chances of succeeding in this field. Then we will come up with ways to create a game plan to implement self-care into our daily lives.

When Helping Hurts the Human-Animal Bond
When “helping” feels like it hurts the human/animal bond. The effect on our psyche and the emotions we feel not being able to treat. When we are unable to treat due to a patient’s temperament or reaction to said treatment, it is easy to feel like our goal to heal and practice gold standard medicine gets lost in the shuffle. As caregiver’s we can feel frustration, guilt and failure. Often times these emotions cloud our judgement and seem to make our jobs even harder. By acknowledging we feel these emotions and that not every case will follow our plan, we free ourselves from our harshest critics; ourselves. By changing the perspective from admitting defeat to doing the best we can in the situations presented to us I hope to create conversation that shows we all have the human/animal bond as our focus and that less-than-ideal situations do not equate poor standards of care.

Managing Conflict: Ways to Keep Cool in Tense Situations
Most people avoid conflict at all costs. Conflict is an uncomfortable emotion that leaves many of us questioning what we could have done differently. It’s human nature to avoid any perceived conflict in the veterinary practice. In this lecture we will look at situations of conflict that we face every day in our clinics and how we can diffuse tense situations while building feelings of trust with our clients and teams. If we shift our perspective from “winning an argument” to “having tough but necessary conversations”, we can not only improve relationships but also grow as individuals.
