Pet Grief Seminar

When a beloved pet dies, it can be one of the most painful losses you experience. The pain will likely be intense at first, but it will lessen over time. Remember that good memories are also comforting and enduring. You’re never alone in honouring your loss.

Join us for this virtual pet grief seminar with Desiree Gagnon, a registered provisional psychologist who uses a compassion focused lens to help you process, accept and learn to move on from your grief.

Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2023

Time: 6:00pm-7:30pm 

In this seminar, we explore the importance of the human-animal bond and the wonderful relationship we share with our pets. We then discuss the meaning of grief and how our culture and society is ill-equipped to help people who are grieving. Often times, the circumstances around the loss of a pet are out of our control. We do our best, but the guilt and sadness can still feel overwhelming. During the seminar, we talk about the places we go when we grieve and the coping strategies needed to support yourself, as well explain and support a child through the loss of their pet.
