Today I am kicking off the first of a few conversations specific to well being within particular professions.
My guest for this episode has spent 10 years researching why the mental health of Veterinarians has become so compromised and what can be done about it.
Dr Nadine Hamilton is a psychologist who has worked with Vets in her private practice to help them develop better coping strategies and get on top of stress and psychological fatigue to avoid burnout and prevent suicide. She also works with veterinary practice managers and owners to increase wellbeing, productivity and the retention of vets in the workplace - and she is the author of a new book, ‘Coping with Stress and Burnout as a Veterinarian’
Listen in as Nadine and I discuss:
The 'Dark Side' of the Veterinary Profession
Sources of stress for Vets and their colleagues
The ways in which Positive Psychology and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can help
Nadine's Coping and Wellbeing Program for Veterinary Professionals
A 'must listen' conversation for Veterinarians and those who love them, Vet Science students and those who teach them, and pet owners everywhere.
