I was delighted to learn recently that not only is my book, “Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss,” being used for the Animal Chaplaincy component of the curriculum at Emerson Theological Institute, but it’s also recommended for the training offered by the American Institute of Health Care Professionals’ Pet-Loss Grief Recovery Specialist Certification Program!

First of all, I’m thrilled to know organizations are beginning to include this subspecialty, then to find my work is instrumental in people’s pursuit of this training pushes me over the moon! I am truly grateful that the ripples of compassion are becoming so far-reaching. Many thanks to the administrators of those two fine programs!—Sid
