 Medicinal Mushrooms in Veterinary Practice: mechanisms, research and practical applications. 

Every dog magazine says don’t feed dogs mushrooms! Mushrooms are a huge kingdom and yes amanita mushrooms should be off the edible list, but what about medicinal mushrooms?  Join Dr Barbara Fougere in an exploration of seven fungi and their practical application in practice, their actions, indications and safety. Discover fungi that enhance senior pet wellbeing; that support cancer and that support patients with renal and liver disease. And if you studied microbiology…you know the principles already so we will review easy cultivation of mushrooms to grow your own.



 Once you’ve registered, please send any questions you may have for Dr. Fougere about Medicinal Mushrooms via email to communicationscoordinator@vbma.org. Dr. Fougere will answer submitted questions during the webinar presentation.

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


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. 


Hannah Sherebrin is a Registered Art Therapist with the American Art Therapy Association (ATR-BC 91-044), Ontario Art Therapy Association (OATR-12), Canadian Art Therapy Association (RCATA) and the Israeli Arts Therapies Association (Y.A.T.-Supervisor-188).  She completed her Master Certificate degree in 1990 at the University of Western Ontario, and received the social services of London Ontario distinguished medal of service award in 1996, and the Lifetime Professional Achievement and service Award in 2018 from the Israeli Arts Therapies Association.
