Blue Cross - Pet Bereavement
The significance of the death of a well-loved pet, often a person's dear companion, is often underestimated. The talk will cover aspects of pet loss and the service we provide. We hope that people will understand that grief in pet loss is important to normalise and understand.
There will be an opportunity at the end for a short Q&A.
Location of Event: Online
Charge: Pay what you can - you need only Register ONCE for the whole day's events (ie not for every individual event!)
Registration for Online Day enables you to attend ANY OR ALL of the events, as you choose. (The only exception is for the sessions on Deep Listening for Assisted Dying, to which only the first 15 participants will be admitted to each session, first come first served.) To register you will be asked to pay what you can. There will also be an opportunity to purchase an online recording of all the days' events (excluding the two on Assisted Dying.)
On Registration, you will receive an email from Eventbrite with the Zoom link for the whole day - you just click on the link any time you wish to join an event. There will be a separate link for the sessions on Assisted Dying.
You will also receive reminder emails leading up to the event - and booking will remain open throughout Online Day too, so you can still join even if you missed the start!
