Seventh International Conference on Petloss and Bereavement
and Workshop in Petloss and Bereavement Counseling
in the Hilton Hotel, at Newark Liberty (NJ) Airport
May 16 – 18, 2014
This unique and important conference is designed to serve two distinct groups: pet lovers who are deeply concerned with petloss, and the professionals who serve them and their beloved animals. That includes bereavement counselors, shelter personnel, and others who deal with pets. Please note that this year additional special programs have been added, in a new and expanded outreach to better serve veterinarians and their staffs.
In the morning plenary sessions, during the first 1½ hours, we will have thought-provoking discussions on a few select subjects of high interests to everyone present. There will be impressive panels of renowned authorities joining in with the rest of us, and adding their expert ideas and opinions. Everyone will be a valued participant. This open dialog is something new at our conferences, and you will like it.
Also, on Friday, May 16, 2014 we will again be giving our highly acclaimed in-person 10-hour Workshop for pet bereavement counselors. The special APLB Certificate of Training, as well as 10 CE credits, authorized by NASW will also be awarded for this.
On Saturday and Sunday a section in the main meeting room will be utilized during the seminars as an ongoing bereavement clinic. A special Wall of Honor will be set up, where attendees can pin photos and memorial statements of their beloved deceased pets. And there will be a page in the Conference Catalog, naming and honoring all the deceased pets of those who attend. Related books, material and paraphernalia will be made available here, and vendors will set up special distribution tables.
Breakfasts and the Saturday night dinner are free to those with paid registrations for both days of the conference. Anyone else is invited to attend, if they make special arrangements with Dr. Sife. Vegetarian selections are available.
The Hilton Hotel will set up a special room reservation page soon, on our conference webpage. We have already reserved a large block of rooms, at a very reduced price.

The registration page will be posted in mid-January.
Early Bird discounts will be given up to May 1st.
