Pilot Project: Online Animal-Assisted Grief Group Counselling

As the current COVID-19 pandemic has both increased and complicated the need for grief care, there is a need to develop an alternative and innovative approach to provide effective grief care without risking the safety of those involved. This pilot project aims to explore possibilities for a care model that nurtures the healthy grieving process through an online group setting, along with the aid of an animal partner.

Dates/Times: Saturdays 9:00am to 11:00am.

April 17th, 24th, May 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and June 5th (8 sessions in total)
