Seminars

Don offers three different seminars on the use of the Bach Flower Remedies with pets. He has presented these seminars in Japan, Canada, and various locations throughout the US, including the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) annual conference in 2004 and 2005.

A Quick Overview of the Bach Flower Remedies

The objective of this one to two-hour presentation will be to introduce the audience to the Bach Flower Remedies, their history and how and why they are used with people and pets. The primary focus will be on Rescue Remedy.

Using the Bach Flower Remedies to Treat Ourselves and Our Pets

I offer this seminar in a one-and-a-half-day (9-hour) and a two-day (12-hour) format. The objective of either format will be to introduce the Bach Flower Remedies and to provide enough introductory information for the audience to start using the remedies with their pets and themselves for simple emotional/behavioral issues.

One-and-a-half-day (9-hour) Format
  • Covers dogs or cats
  • What Are the Bach Flower Remedies?
  • Who Was Dr. Bach?
  • How and Why Were the Bach Flower Remedies Developed?
  • How Do the Remedies Work?
  • How Do We Determine Which Remedies to Use with Our Pets?
  • Analyzing Our Animals’ Needs, Behaviors, Emotions and Communications.
  • A Review of the 38 Remedies and Their Respective Uses.
Two-day (12-hour) Format
  • Covers dogs and cats
  • What Are the Bach Flower Remedies?
  • Who Was Dr. Bach?
  • How and Why Were the Bach Flower Remedies Developed?
  • How Do the Remedies Work?
  • How Do We Determine Which Remedies to Use with Our Pets?
  • Analyzing Our Animals’ Needs, Behaviors, Emotions and Communications.
  • A Review of the 38 Remedies and Their Respective Uses.
  • Work in small groups to review case studies as a team

At the end of the day, participants will be given the opportunity to purchase dropper bottles so that they may prepare a treatment bottle for themselves or their pets. If you choose the two-day option, there will be more opportunities for participants to work in small groups throughout the presentation, reviewing case studies as a team. The best way to learn how to use the remedies is by doing simple case studies, gradually increasing in complexity. The additional time also allows for a more thorough discussion of each of the 38 remedies, review of more complicated emotional/behavioral issues, and the examination of more case studies from my files. I will describe the process I use for evaluating behavioral clients and how I at times treat both animal and human. We will also discuss how attendees can learn more about the Bach Flower Remedies and how to become a registered practitioner.

Seminar attendees will be advised that the Bach Foundation Code of Practice prohibits me from recommending specific remedies for specific pets unless I have a veterinary referral and have reviewed their pets case as part of a formal consultation. Discussion of the use of specific remedies will focus on cases that I have seen and on general uses.
