The Veterinary Social Work Summit has always incorporated both playful team building activities and mindfulness practice* through the conference. The reason for this is to honor and replicate what many of us love about animals- their playfulness and their ability to simply be present.

To help us with these activities we will have veterinary students trained in team building, Zumba and yoga instructors, as well as mindfulness practitioners to guide us through small, short, fun opportunities to be both playful and mindful.

The cultivation of these loved animal qualities in ourselves makes sharing our scholarly and practice-based work rich and respectful with plenty of JOY!

All activities will be voluntary; whatever you are comfortable with…

*All Mindfulness activities are strictly grounded in the well researched Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program. To learn more about MBSR, please click here.
