    Words from the Wise

    Here are a few thoughts that we would like you to think about

    • Harvey MacKay: Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it, you can never get it back.
    • Napoleon Bonaparte: Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go.
    • Steve Jobs: Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
    • Benjamin Franklin: You may delay, but time will not.

    Whether you have been involved with animals all of your life, or are just starting your purposeful work, this webinar will help you face the challenges and find the joy! It is designed for anyone with love and compassion for animals.

    Are we as force-free with our clients and our colleagues as we are with the animals in our care? Our behavior-consulting work often takes place amidst emotionally charged situations. The stakes can be high and our clients can be upset, argumentative and unpleasant. Additionally, these same characteristics can describe our colleagues as well at times. And so, when dealing with disagreeable people, can we apply our core skills of careful observation, non-reactivity, gradual shaping and timely reinforcement of alternate behaviors? Let’s consider if we are willing to extend our ethic of non-violence to include our interactions with people as well as pets, and if so, what practical changes we could make to support this.

    Presented by Dr. Vanessa Rohlf

    CEUs: PPAB 1, CCPDT 1

    Companion animals occupy an important role in our lives. They are our friends, our confidants and cherished members of the family. They provide unconditional love and support. They never judge and are always happy to see us when we come home. It's no surprise then that the death of a companion animal can be just as profound and devastating as the loss of a human significant other.

    Animal care professionals and trainers are in the privileged position of working with these special animals and, while this can be an extremely rewarding role, it can also mean that professionals are also exposed to grief and loss when these animals die.

    This seminar is designed to give trainers and animal care professionals information on current theories and findings relevant to animal bereavement. Attendees will also be offered practical tools for self-care and strategies to support clients, friends and family members who may be experiencing companion animal bereavement.

    In this webinar attendees will:

    1. Appreciate the significance of animal bereavement

    2. Be able to describe common grief reactions

    3. Recognize types of grief including disenfranchised, anticipatory and complicated grief

    4. Learn strategies for self-care and ways of coping

    5. Learn how to support others through grief
