Sometimes the hardest thing is knowing where to turn and who to turn to when you need help for yourself or your child. Suffering a loss of any kind is a journey that should not be taken alone. There is a difference between a Support Group and a Support Program. A Support Group is a group of people who are in very similar situations and can rely on each other for support. A Support Program can be so much more! It is often facilitated by professionals who through various forms of therapy can serve as a support system for you and your loved ones.
Below is a list of SUPPORT PROGRAMS who can offer A PLACE TO START your journey toward HEALING! If you are such a program and would like to see it listed below, please contact Jennifer Taylor, Project Manager, for details at firstname.lastname@example.org
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!!!
