Book due out with Wiley in July 2023 - Practical Human Behaviour Change for the Health and Welfare of Animals
I am a Mental Health Nurse with over 37 years experience of clinical practice, service management, training and education. I am experienced in training needs analysis, designing bespoke training packages and delivering sessions, days and longer courses. I am also an independent researcher and write about mental health issues, animals and their impact on humans, and training and education. I have also volunteered in Equine Welfare for over 30 years.
I regularly deliver longer behaviour change, including Motivational Interviewing, courses for animal health,care and welfare workers to support the owners and clients they work with to make behaviour changes to improve the welfare of their animals. I also deliver a similar course for health and social care workers.
Other courses include bespoke Mental Health Awareness courses for a variety of workers. These can be tailored to particular needs for professional groups or organisations.
All of my courses are currently delivered online due to the Covid-19 pandemic and are of the same standard and to the same learning outcomes as my face-to-face courses.
I am also a Healthcare leadership model 360 degree feedback facilitator
Using Supervision for Animal
Welfare Workers Operating
Remotely During a Pandemic
Sam Chubbock from World Horse Welfare I will be presenting at the International Supervision Week in July - our slot is Friday 1st July 3pm to 4pm BST.
We will be reporting 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.
The International Supervision Week operates a self-select fee for attendance - "a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues" and,
"the guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances."

I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on what you need. Instructors need to be able to motivate and guide students towards success. As an experienced and passionate instructor, I believe in an approach that gives students positive, constructive ways to learn. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.

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.
