Speaker: Susan P. Cohen, DSW
Dr. Susan P. Cohen has been called a pioneer in the fields of pet loss, human-animal interaction, and the human side of veterinary practice.

These days she consults with veterinary organizations on client and professional communication, compassion fatigue, and how to make practice fun again. She facilitates free online support groups for veterinarians and those who are grieving the loss of a pet. She teaches online workshops, lectures, and writes for academic publications. Her most recent book chapter is for a textbook: HAI and the Impact of Pet Loss in The Routledge International Handbook of Human-Animal Interactions and Anthrozoology, Edited by A.H.
