Child Life Career Seminar
Are you interested in a future career in child life? Our career seminar provides the opportunity to learn all about the profession from a Certified Child Life Specialist. This free seminar is intended to be an introductory class for prospective students who are interested in this field of work.


During the seminar you will learn about child life fundamentals to help build your knowledge base and allow you the opportunity to see if child life is a good match for you. Some key topics that we will be discussing are: development, play, preparation, distraction, and medical play.
