For several years, Mark Bilkey, Psy.D., Program Director for Gerontological Counseling at the Adler School, has volunteered twice a month with the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago to facilitate its Pet Loss and Grief Support Group.  In this capacity, he was recently interviewed by blogger Tatiana Garrett, Director of Community Outreach for the society, discussing how people can best cope with the grief of losing a pet.

Among his observations: “We must honor our pets by taking their lessons of being in the moment and taking care of ourselves. Be joyful; they don’t want us to be upset. Our pets pick up on our emotions and feeling better is just a thought away so choose [your thoughts] wisely.”
