One of the vital components of Bobby's Books is the training we offer to the community. This training teaches both professional and lay audiences alike how to identify children's grief and realize how different and unique it truly is. Before you can know how to help a child in your life, you must first learn what they are going through.
We offer two different trainings: Don't Flush the Goldfish educational seminar, and Train the Trainer workshops. Continuing Education credits are also available. Please take a moment to learn more about each seminar by clicking on the links above and learn how to take that next step toward helping a child in your life.

Hospice of Northwest Ohio is committed to providing support to the children in our community and we have provided Bobby’s Books training to nearly 70 schools in Northwest Ohio reaching to more than 25,000 students.
We are impressed with the Bobby’s Books program and curriculum. We loved the fact that Pam Krenzke developed this easy to use tool for anyone who has the compassion and desire to help a child, of any age, cope with their grief.
Bobby’s Books program empowers adults who are providing support to grieving children in a way that is unique to the loss. The Train the Trainer session was informative, interactive and fun to participate in. As grief counselors we have an understanding of what grief and loss for children looks like. What makes the training session unique is it can be attended by anyone whether or not you have formal counseling training.
The opportunities on how to use this program are endless and is only limited by the creativity of the individual using the program. Another great tool within this program is the large bibliography offered regarding many types of grief/loss and for a variety of age groups including adults. We recommend this program for your organization or community. A must have program!!!
