    Russell Friedman Grief Recovery from Pet Loss

    in Self Help

    Show Cancelled.


    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, then go on with our own lives? What do we do about getting another pet? Russell Friedman and his colleagues, author of Grief Recovery from 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!

    Understanding The Loss of Your Pet

    in Pets

    What happens to you when your pet dies?


    The death of a beloved pet can mean saying goodby to a best friend.  Not only do you miss the companionship but this may have been your one source of unconditional and nonjudgemental love.


    Our pets come to symbolize many things to each of us.  To Judy Cameron, co-host, her dogs represented her children.  To Judy Helm Wright, co-host, her dog filled an empty nest. Imagine how a pet may reflect the ideal mate or parent or companion--ever faithful, loyal and welcoming us daily. Can you see in your mind's eye how strong this bond may be?


    We know how you feel, because we have felt the same way.  We understand your pain and acknowledge your sorrow.


    Give Yourself time to grieve


    As coaches, authors and pet parents, we truly do understand your grief. We recognize that you do not need anyone else's approval to mourn the loss of your pet, nor do you need to justify your feelings to others.  But, we offer a "Safe Place" to share your stories and be able to be open about your feelings right now.


    Join us on our weekly broadcasts as well as on our Facebook page--  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dealing-with-the-loss-of-a-pet/716509988445040  Return often to this Facebook page and find out exciting news about a pet loss support group and tele-classes.  You will be so glad you did.
