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


I just received this wonderful message about my book. Keep your collective fingers crossed that the board accepts the proposal to make my book part of their required curriculum! It’d be a dream come true for me to be instrumental in helping other animal chaplains prepare themselves for doing such important work. Whatever the final decision, I offer my sincerest thanks to Dr. Kris for her kind initiative.—Sid

Hi Sid — Dr. Kris Lecakes Haley from Emerson Theological Institute here — I just took a look at your book and you really did a phenomenal job on incredibly important topic!  I have been searching for a comprehensive text that contains all of the critical components of loss and you hit every single one.  I would like to submit your book to the school (Emerson) for consideration as one of the texts we use for the Bereavement component of our Animal Chaplain program. … Really exceptional job.
