On this episode, we welcome Dr. Guy Winch, licensed psychologist and in-demand keynote speaker, back to the show to talk about healing from the loss of a pet. Dr. Winch was with us previously to talk about his book "How to Fix a Broken Heart", which aims to help people cope about a breakup or death of someone they love; that someone can be a pet and the loss is devastating. What can we do to heal and move forward from it? Why does it feel like we never fully get over it? Listen to find out the answers. You can watch his compelling TED talk "Why we all need to practice emotional first aid", which has gathered more than six and a half million views, at https://www.ted.com/talks/guy_winch_the_case_for_emotional_hygiene. His website is http://www.guywinch.com.
