    Russell Friedman: Grief Recovery from Pet Loss

    in Self Help

    According to the AAVA, Americans owned more than 157 million pets in 2012. Americans LOVE their pets! A big problem with pets, however, is that their lives are shorter than human lives. We love them, and lose them far too soon for us. How do we deal with losing them? What do we need to do in order to grieve their loss fully, and then go on with our own lives? What do we do about getting another pet? Russell Friedman and his colleagues, author of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss, is an expert in grief and applies his understanding to the very real grief we human feel when our pets die. Russell and co-author John James have created the Grief Recovery Method, shared with you when you listen to Full Power Living.


    So many people preface the report of the deep grief they feel after the death of their dog, cat or bird, with “I know I’m being stupid/silly, but….” It turns out that grief is grief, and grief felt over the death of our beloved pet is no more silly or stupid than grief we feel over the lost of a person we love. Who better to discuss this with than someone who is an expert on all aspects of grief? Listen on Thursday as Russell Friedman talks with us on questions most of us have when we suffer loss. Click here to visit Russell Friedman's website!

    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman

    in Psychology

    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman


    Your relationship with your pet is special--it's a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the  loss dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that the authors discuss and dismantle in The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss. Based on the authors' Grief Recovery Method®, this book  addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.
