We will help support groups find the resources they need to make a difference. We support other publishers who are also reaching people. All of us are unique.
We are sensitive to the needs of others and to our own needs. Each call into our office will find a caring voice on the other end, with time to listen and readiness to help.
We will all participate in continuing education events every year to increase our own expertise and to help us develop spiritually and emotionally. Our clients and our members are considered part of a caring, extended family, and we will develop personal relationships with them and they with us. We will consult and listen to advice and new ideas.
We look at the challenges before us as positive, rewarding experiences. We will not set limits beneath our potential. We will treat ourselves and others with respect. We will encourage creativity and new ideas. We will enjoy the changes that come.
The Centering Corporation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education and resources for the bereaved. Centering was founded in 1977 by Joy and Dr. Marvin Johnson.
We started with nine little coloring books for hospitalized children and two workshop offerings for nurses and families. In response to the need for support by families and caregivers while facing their grief experience we developed many new resources.
Today we publish hundreds of books for children and adults, My Friends Emotion Dolls, a Memory Bag for children, DVDs and caring cards, plus thousands of books and resources from other publishers. We continue to provide educational offerings and workshops for caregivers and families. Our experienced staff brings new life and ideas to meet our changing needs in today’s bereavement experiences.
