Pet Loss and Human Emotion: A guide to recovery
Through this book, there are many topics surrounding the topic on the aftermath of losing a pet.
3 main key points that popped up to me was:
1 The human-companion animal bond
Pet provides companionship, protection, entertainment, stimulus for exercise, social opportunities, and a chance to love and nurture something.
2 Behavioural manifestation of grief and loss
3 Thoughts about losing and loving companion animals
This article’s research approach is based on a method of narrative reflections on one’s experience: Autoethnography [to research and describe about personal experience]
To explore the meaning of the loss of a pet.
Animals perceived as integral members of modern family
Companion animals hold a significant place in the lives of many at each stage of the life cycle
Narrative reflections serves as research and therapy.
