“As a psychiatric nurse and educator in a large community hospital, I regularly incorporate Conversations with Bobby to assist our recovery groups with feelings of hope, inspiration and gratitude. Many of my patients have grown up with childhood pain and trauma and find themselves with addiction and mental health issues. By introducing and reflecting on Bob Danzig’s life story, both his struggles and his successes, our patients are able to focus on hope, optimism and re-discovery of their own life and future.

“We often refer to the ‘child within’ as we reflect on our life’s journey—perhaps as a way to remind us to sometimes revisit the playful life of a child we have outgrown. In connecting to his ‘child within,’ Bob Danzig shares with us all the incredible journey he has taken in his life. His message is simple, yet powerful: every child needs our support during challenging times, and every child is special and has promise. Bob Danzig serves the interest of every young person, whether in foster care or a traditional family, by sharing this touching story that will give hope and inspiration to child and adult alike.”
