Author and psychotherapist JoAnn Tuzeo-Jarolmen uses her 25 years of experience as a children's grief counsellor to explain the scientific side of bereavement. She poses a series of questions to the parents for whom this book is intended and follows them with advice on how to expect a child to deal with losing a pet and when professional help may be necessary.
Practical Professional Child Care
This easy-to-read guide suggests methods for sensitivity addressing the emotional needs of children and gives age-appropriate strategies. Both parents and carers will find it an informative resource.
Linda Goldman, author of Children Also Grieve
When a Family Pet Dies is a book that presents a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the impact of pet loss on children and provides practical interventions in facilitating the child's grief process. This resource addresses signs of grieving children, their relationships with their pets, and how caring adults can be helpful. I recommend it highly.
Too often a neglected subject is the effect on a child (and the family) when a much loved pet dies.
