Dr. Guy Winch: ...how to cope with the loss of a pet Nobody Told Me!

    • Entrepreneurship

Why is there stigma associated with how we cope with the loss of a pet? It seems like we can't get it right: we're judged for grieving the death of the animal too much ('it's just a pet!') or too little ('he/she is getting a new dog already?').

What can we do to heal and move forward from it? Why does it feel like we never fully get over it?

You can watch his compelling TED talk, "Why we all need to practice emotional first aid", which has gathered more than six and a half million views, at https://www.ted.com/talks/guy_winch_the_case_for_emotional_hygiene. His website is http://www.guywinch.com.
