Are you working as a supervisor/mentor in Clinical Animal Behaviour, or would like to develop this role?
Build your Supervision and Mentoring skills and a solid framework for supporting other practitioners in these two focused training workshops with Loni Loftus CCAB and Karen Wild CCAB
Loni and Karen have extensive experience and training in both coaching, supervision, mentoring and assessment. They hold close ties with many organisations within the Clinical Animal Behaviour and animal training industry, as well as having long-established, successful behaviour practices.
A supervisor has multiple roles, but these are best maintained within a clear structure and can require a range of skills. These training workshops are aimed to build structure and maintain best practice standards for supervisors. We aim to help you avoid common pitfalls and to build your awareness about how informal agreements may not be the best way forward. Supervision and mentoring is a service that anyone can offer without appropriate standards, training or skill, and can leave vulnerable practitioners open to unrealistic promises and expectations.
Now is the time for us to move positively towards the best standards we can offer for those we supervise and mentor, helping them to support their clients and their pets in their own behaviour practices.
"As 'Loftus and Wild - Animal Behaviour Supervision and Mentoring', we have adopted solid standards of supervision and mentoring practice, along with sensible, structured approaches for supervision and mentoring in the Clinical Animal Behaviour field".
"We aim to encourage our supervisees, with an approachable but formal structure, giving them the support they need to provide the best client care".
