Animal Talks Announces Pet Grief Workshops

Boston-based non-profit Animal Talks is a leader in the emerging field of Pet Grief, the body and mind’s response to the death of a deeply loved pet. (You can read news coverage about the organization here.)

This month and in February, Animal Talks is offering two 90-minute Zoom workshops on the Basics of Pet Grief Counseling. The workshops can help you or someone you know process the loss of a beloved pet, and help you earn certification as a Pet Grief Counselor if you’d like to take that step. If you’re interested in continuing on to certification, Animal Talks will follow up with you on relevant books, articles and requirements.
