CATCHING OUR COLLECTIVE BREATH: A mindfulness retreat for veterinarians, veterinary technicians/technologists, staff, and veterinary students

 

August 25 – 28, 2022:

Knowing that all our lives have been changed by the COVID pandemic, we are inviting interested members of the veterinary profession the opportunity to take time and participate in a weekend of didactics and dialogues with the aim of helping us return to our professional and personal lives with a greater sense of meaning and gratitude. The didactics will be a combination of group participation and speaker presentation.

 

To benefit from the weekend, participants should commit to attending all activities, including didactics, group discussions, yoga, art and meditation sessions. While formal meditation training is not a requirement, the ability to maintain a quiet posture for approximately 30 minutes several times daily will be helpful. There will be ample opportunities for private time, so that participants can enjoy Bellarmine’s beautiful facilities and grounds.

 

This course has been approved for 9 hours of continuing education credit for veterinarians and veterinary technicians/technologists in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval.

Colleagues and Staff in Crisis: Suicide Awareness and Mental Wellbeing

 

May 24 – June 7, 2022: Stress within the veterinary field is at an all-time high and takes a toll on all members of the team. Unfortunately, the pressures of veterinary practice, possible genetic predisposition, and personal experiences lead some doctors, technicians, and others to end their own lives. Several surveys have found that both thoughts of suicide and completed acts are higher among animal health professionals than nearly any other group. In this course we will discuss the risk factors for suicide, recognize common causes of suicide, and how to get help for someone in crisis.
