Healing Through Written Words: Coping with a Pet’s Departure

| June 30, 2023

Our pets hold a special place in our hearts, and their absence can feel devastating. Whether missing, surrendered, re-homed, or passed on, filling the void they leave behind can feel overwhelming. 

Regardless of the circumstances, the sadness of losing a pet is beyond our scope of understanding. For those who are seeking a more creative outlet for their emotions, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Collaborative is hosting a creative writing workshop that encourages individuals to explore and express their emotions through the healing power of writing.   

The Pet Loss & Grief: Writing to Heal workshop is a free, 6-week workshop, that will be held from July 6th to August 10th, 2023. Led by Nadja Lubiw-Hazard, a veterinarian and writer, the workshop encourages participants to write and reflect on their cherished memories with their departed companions, offering guidance that will help them to move forward and adjust to life without their beloved animals.
