WEB-007a: This webinar explores the complex emotional experience of working in the field of laboratory animal care and will assist individuals in navigating approaches to self-care and support.

Background
Have you ever experienced anxiety, stress, sadness or fear about working with animals in biomedical research? One of the most silent, but significant stressors in the laboratory animal profession is the grief experienced during animal morbidity, mortality or in anticipation of one or both of these events. The human-animal bond is a rich and complex relationship that exists in many forms, as by nature, humans have a fundamental tendency to develop attachments towards animals. Given that we spend a significant portion of our day working with laboratory animals; it is not surprising when strong, emotional bonds develop or when anxiety or grief over the loss of animals under our care occurs. It is important to understand that all individuals associated with animal care programs, whether direct or indirect, intermittent or continuous, may experience these feelings which can impact work performance in various ways. This webinar will explore the complex emotional experience of working in the field of laboratory animal care and will assist individuals in navigating approaches to self-care and support.
