About this Mentorship

The IAABC is pleased to offer a unique opportunity in the industry: a horse behaviour consulting mentorship. This program will focus on the consultation process and help you manage and resolve equine behaviour problems through guided online discussions, sample case studies, useful handouts, and more.

Working with mentor Justine Harrison CHBC, you will have the opportunity to work through case studies from start to finish. You'll also be able to ask questions about your own cases, discuss problems with Justine and other mentees, analyse videos, and meet weekly for face-to-face live, on-line group support.

The mentorship will cover:

  • The consultation process
  • Effective history taking
  • Creating a realistic behaviour modification plan
  • Managing client expectations
  • Working with vets and other professionals
  • Handouts and resources
  • Branding and marketing your business
  • The practicalities of working as a behaviour consultant
  • Case study examples
  • Your own cases and questions

About IAABC Mentorships

Each 8-week mentorship provides mentees with ongoing online chat, video exchanges, documentation, links, and scheduled weekly live chats via video meeting.

Mentees can discuss their own cases or any others, ask questions about application and theory, ask for tips and advice on overcoming specific challenges, and be guided toward even higher levels of professionalism and effectiveness. The mentors are there for the mentees, and offer all help and discussion that each mentee finds useful.

Auditing is also available Auditors may observe and learn about topics under discussion between the mentor and full mentees. Auditors do not attend the weekly live chats, may not introduce their own cases or ask for specific input on their own work. Auditors may participate in ongoing topics and discussions, and their questions will be answered if time allows. Auditing is simply an opportunity to observe and learn from the mentees' and mentors' experiences.

Auditor Spots are all 8 CEUs for CCPDT.
