'I’m stressed' is one of the most commonly repeated sentences among veterinary practitioners. We feel overwhelmed and exhausted, which impacts both our clinical performance and private life.

Stress in an umbrella term and truly understanding the emotions that underlie our state of overwhelm is a key to managing it and creating a more peaceful, powerful and “in-control” life.

This two hour workshop will dive into the topic of stress and help listeners to develop new tools to tame their stress.

  • Understand stress, distress, eustress

  • Discover the pathomechanism of physical and mental distress

  • Learn to recognise mental and physical signs and repercussions of distress

  • Become more skilled at emotional granularity

  • Deepen your self-awareness

  • Learn how to stop the downward spiral of negative thoughts 

Because participation is heavily encouraged, this workshop will not be recorded to allow people to feel comfortable to engage freely

Available internationally, except the US and Canada
