Well-being consults in veterinary medicine with Jeannine Moga, LSW | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts
In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education podcast, VETgirl’s Chief Happiness Officer, Jeannine Moga, MA, MSW, LCSW, clinical veterinary social worker, discusses what a well-being consult is, and why we as veterinary professionals should consider them! The biggest “themes” of stressors in veterinary medicine include having too many fires and too little energy, particularly with home/work strain; concerns about structural issues in practices that make it impossible to successfully work with/recover from COVID strain; and career disappointment. Tune in to learn how we as veterinary professionals can get our feet underneath us and restore balance, or find a workable solution for themselves.
