Third Thursday Rounds - April 2021
Through the Lens of Trauma: Experiences in Veterinary Medicine
Presented by Chief Medical Officer Shana O'Marra, DVM, DACVECC, and Veterinary Well-being Program Director Debrah Lee, LCSW
April 15 AT 7:30PM PST
This lecture, presented by Chief Medical Officer Shana O'Marra, DVM, DACVECC, and Veterinary Well-being Program Director Debrah Lee, LCSW, will examine the concept of trauma in the veterinary world. Trauma is woven throughout many aspects of veterinary medicine and can influence the way we experience our work. Recognizing the impact of trauma can help us to better understand communication challenges and difficult team dynamics. We will discuss how trauma contributes to burnout and compassion fatigue in the individual and how trauma can influence the culture of a practice. Lastly, we will discuss how trauma-informed approaches can contribute to the mental health of your team.
