Why does the death of a companion pet hurt so much?
A new class from CEDAR Education

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?

Participants are invited to stay afterward for coffee/tea and sharing, at their own expense, in the Palmer’s cafe, if they wish to.

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