Event Details

Presented by: Hannah Donovan-Calam

Finding a balance between theory and real-life can be challenging. Science-based knowledge on body language and our inferences of the underlying emotional motivations can help us to adapt our behaviour towards our patients and improve interactions. Within a veterinary setting, there can be a sense of urgency and time pressure. In this webinar we will look at how we can best interpret our patients’ emotional states and therefore, mental health, to respond to each individual appropriately and set them up to succeed.
