    in Pets

    Sid Korpi authored "Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss" and speak to pet loss support groups on the topic.  She is also an animal chaplain, helping people cope with the tragedy of losing a precious companion animal.
    Who thinks you're the most wonderful, irreplaceable being in existence (even when you're cranky, have bed head, have put on some pounds, etc.)? Who forgives you virtually anything, never holds a grudge, and loves you unconditionally? Who among your best friends will you likely have to make the unthinkable, heartbreaking decision of when they must die when ill-health/pain dominates their life? The answer to all of the above is our animal companions. With them we share an intense emotional bond. So why is it that, when grieving their passing, many of us still feel we must suffer in silence or be labeled somehow defective?

    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!
