Coping with Healthcare Experiences

In order to make hospitalization a less stressful experience, we as Child Life Specialists strive to help alleviate stress and anxiety while promoting positive coping strategies for both the children who are going to be hospitalized and their siblings

Age appropriate medical play will give the patient  an opportunity to better understand the difficult and complex experiences that they face while in the hospital.  The canine visitors, which are part of our pet therapy  progam, will bring a smile to most any patient.
