Cognitive Resilience Training for Pet Bereavement
Helping individuals to manage the grief of pet loss
Custom Designed Curriculum
CLC programs are costumed designed to fit the need of every client. Each class incorporates a lesson in neuroscience, kinesthetic movement, and cognitive behavioral exercises. We provide individuals with tools to address stress associated with veterinary work such as work overload, secondary trauma, technology challenges, and communication trials with coworkers and clients.
Our curriculum walks trainees through our three-step structure – Science, Exercise for the Brain and Extension of Self (SEE) – where individuals learn to cope with stress through better impulse control, increased communication skills, less anger, healthier habits, improved sleep, increased self-appreciation, and addressing addictive behaviors.
CLC Courses Are Built From the Following Subjects
Pre & post evaluations are included with every CLC program. When possible, quantitative measures will be taken for data analysis contributing to ongoing research in the field of neuroscience.
When a cherished pet dies, the experience of grief and bereavement is real, significant, and heart-wrenching. In fact, the effects of losing a pet can be physical as well as psychological resulting in a loss of dopamine and serotonin (feel-good hormones), and an increase of cortisol (stress hormone). CLC's Cognitive Resilience Training provides evidence-based tools to help bereaving pet parents to find relief and coping mechanisms to manage the grief of pet loss.
