Have you been profoundly affected by the death of your beloved pet?
Do you feel like you could use some help working through your pet loss grief?
We have found a great new resource that might be just what what you need…It is an e-workbook entitled “How to ROAR: Pet Loss Grief Recovery”,  by Robin Jean Brown.

Ms. Brown has turned her own grief into a focused recovery process that uses journaling, to help you:

  • Validate the importance of your tragedy and feelings
  • Learn valuable grief coping skills & strategies
  • Find closure and renewed happiness despite your loss

The loss of a beloved animal companion can be devastating. Society does not provide us with the rituals and resources to properly deal with pet loss grief, so we suffer alone, and in silence.

ROAR is a sensible, practical, compassionate approach that helps lead you gently through the grief of losing one of your “best friends”.
