Trauma and the Brain - Dr Jacqui Ley 1 CPD Points


Managing patients through a trauma is something that Veterinarians and Veterinary Nurses do well. We handle their long term care and return to normal functioning. What we are not so good at is recognising and being proactive in treating psychological trauma. What is this and why should we care? Psychological trauma is a real thing and can affect animals. It may affect their ability to function in their environments and have good and safe interactions with owners and carers. It needs to be addressed. This seminar will explore the neuroscience of trauma and discuss diagnosis and treatment strategies for animals that have experienced trauma.
