VBMA WEBINAR: BASIC-Ph – A STORY OF RESILIENCE

WHEN: Wednesday October 27th, 2021 8:30 PM Eastern US Time

For our sixteenth webinar,  Hannah Sherebrin, ATR-BC, OATR, YAHAT Supervisor ,will lecture on BASIC-Ph. Only $70 for VBMA Members!

 WEBINAR TOPIC: 

When our practices are changing and there is uncertainty all around, feeling overloaded and stressed is inevitable. We are challenged to use every resource we can amass in order to stay resilient and sharp in order to serve our clients.

Empirical psychology has begun to conceptualize resilience, applying models which are based explicitly on the idea of healthy or adaptive development in the face of stressful influences. 

In this workshop you will be introduced to the BASIC-Ph, a model which is based explicitly on the idea of healthy or adaptive development in the face of stressful influences.

 A power point presentation of the theoretical material will precede the hands-on experiential part of the workshop. Please prepare a notebook, colored 11X14 sheet of heavy paper, and a white 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper. Have on hand a glue stick, crayons, markers, pencil and pen. We will be using our cell phone cameras to photograph the process. Bring your curiosity and openness to have meaningful enjoyment. 

There will be a short presentation on adaptogenic herbs for resilience by Dr. Rona Sherebrin immediately preceding the workshop.

VBMA WEBINAR: How To Integrate Herbs Into Your Practice

This Practitioner Panel discussion will feature Cynthia Lankenau, Ihor Basko, and Rona Sherebrin, with special guest Jamie Moran joining us for the Q&A session.
 
WEBINAR TOPIC: 
Our speakers Ihor Basko, Cynthia Lankenau and Rona Sherebrin will be discussing getting started with Mushrooms, integrating herbs into an Equine practices, and much more. As an added bonus, Jamie Moran will be joining the panel for the Q&A session to discuss how to start using herbs where you’re the only herbal veterinarian in a large practice and your colleagues aren’t on board.
 
 
WEBINAR FORMAT: 
For this roundtable discussion, each speaker will lecture for 20-30 minutes. During each speaker’s lecture time, the other panelists will weigh in on the speaker’s chosen topic. The last 30-35 minutes, during which special guest Jamie Moran will join the panel, will be devoted to an in-depth Q&A with the speakers and the audience.
 
This is an excellent educational opportunity for veterinarians who are interested in herbal medicine but have yet to begin integrating herbs into their practices, especially at a time when clients are more apt to present the topic as a possible treatment method. As such, for the very first time, we’re giving all our VBMA Members who sign up for this webinar the option to invite one friend or colleague to attend as well…for FREE!
