Why does the death of a companion pet hurt so much?
A short talk from Dr Judith Wester, CEDAR Education CEO

The death of a companion pet can be quite devastating to those who have developed a special bond with their dog, cat or other pet. Deep feelings of grief are natural. However, some people will find it difficult to express their sadness, or console a person who has lost a pet. This talk from the death education expert, Dr Judith Wester, will cover coping with, consoling, and explaining pet death to others:

• Why does pet loss hurt so much?

• Seniors grieving the death of a pet

• Making the decision to euthanize a pet

• Explaining pet euthanasia to children

• Pet Cemeteries/Funerals

• Some coping strategies

• Should you get another pet?

Fees for this talk go to support the Life Lessons Death Education programme for young people. Your support is most appreciated.
