Pet bereavement education and training workshop
This workshop may be useful for those who work with people and animals, including pet minders, veterinary staff, animal rescue, social services, and dog trainers.
Many of us have experienced the pain of losing a beloved animal at some point in our life. In this introductory workshop, you will gain an understating of;
- the different types of grief
- the human-animal bond
- the grieving process
- self-care skills - good mental health
- how grief affects us
Pet bereavement support skills
We will also be teaching pet bereavement support skills in order to help other individuals who are experiencing grief through the death or loss of a pet.
Bereavement support skills may be useful for helping friends, family, employees, and clients.
Along with the death of a pet people also experience grief through missing pets, rehoming a pet which could include moving into accommodation where pets aren’t accepted, family separation, moving into a care home, etc.
A CPD certificate will be available for attendees of this course.
