Using Supervision for Animal
Welfare Workers Operating
Remotely During a Pandemic
Sam Chubbock from World Horse Welfare I presented at the International Supervision Week in 2022.
We reported on some novel interventions done in recent years with equine welfare workers.
A number of the World Horse Welfare team have been trained by in the use of Motivational Interviewing (MI), and then reflective practice groups (also known as supervision) were used following the training to support people in transferring these skills into practice. Our presentation is intended to give an overview of MI and how reflective practice groups have been used following the training, and we will look at what animal welfare organisations and workers might take from this and how reflective practice might be used by others working in this field.

Writing for Publication
Half day and whole day workshops
Practical workshops which will give you knowledge of what to write and where and how to submit for publication.
With a mix of information about the whole of the writing for publication process and practical exercises to start you on your writing project you will come away with a plan of how to progress with your writing.
It is recognised that three main issues get in the way of successfully writing for publication; confidence, time and how to actually write. These workshops look at all of these areas and how you can overcome them with ideas, tips and methods that can be individualised to meet you needs.
