About the Program Program Structure Important Note

The From Grieving to Healing Pet Loss Grief Recovery Online Group Program helps you to:

  • Recognize and identify your pet losses in a safe, confidential group environment
  • Explore more about the unique emotional relationships we have with our pets
  • Implement a step-by-step action plan to acknowledge the losses that are causing you emotional pain and regain a sense of well-being
  • Familiarize yourself with the over 40 types of losses that one can experience in a lifetime
  • Learn the six myths about dealing with grief and recognize how these myths have affected your life and healing journey
  • Acquire a “tool kit” that you can rely on to recover from existing and future losses
  • Discover and complete all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships
  • Develop correct action choices to establish a new pattern of behavior when addressing grief and loss

The Right Grief Support Program Can Help You Move Beyond Loss & Discover New Possibilities for Your Life! Research has shown that having a support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills, and a longer and healthier life. Studies have also shown that following a support program can help with improved communication and interpersonal skills, greater self-acceptance and self-esteem, and the ability to change self-defeating behaviors/habits.

The From Grieving to Healing Pet Loss Grief Recovery Online Group Program includes:

  • Six (6), 2-hour action-based online group sessions led by a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist (CGRS) – group sessions will occur once a week on a pre-set schedule via live Zoom Video (see program dates below)
  • A Completion Certificate (to be mailed upon completion of the program)
  • A copy of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss by John W. James and Russell Friedman, founders of The Grief Recovery Institute (see below for instructions to purchase your book)
  • Accountability Support Partner(s) to share your weekly assignments and keep you on track
  • Access to From Grieving to Healing resources to help you recover from your loss and take actions to reclaim and rebuild your life
  • From Grieving to Healing special keepsake

Register today and we’ll be with you on the journey to help your heart deal with the absence of your cherished companion.

If you’ve found yourself almost inconsolable after your pet died, please know that you’re normal.

If you’ve found that your family and friends don’t seem to understand the level of your grief, please know that, too, is normal.

Without comparing our relationships with our pets to those with people, we know that, because of the unique emotional relationships we have with our pets, their deaths produce a level of pain that is difficult to describe.

If you can relate to any of these statements, then this program is for you.

Important Note: Once your registration is confirmed for your selected group, you will receive an email confirmation with logistical details (including a Zoom link) and other important information about how to prepare for the first session.
