This webinar will cover what medical play is and why it is important for kids to participate, especially when they are exposed to frequent medical experiences themselves or within the home. A Child life specialist, Carissa Menard, will be sharing ways you as a parent can introduce and engage your child in medical play to decrease their misconceptions and fears surrounding your medical experience, and healthcare experiences in general. Through a discussion and demonstration of medical play, parents and guardians will leave with a greater understanding of appropriate language to use and techniques to facilitate assessment and discussion of your child’s emotions and understanding. For any parent who is unsure about how much to share with their child or curious to learn new ways to empower and educate their child about their current medical experience utilizing play, this webinar is for you! Carissa will also take time to do a live Q&A for parents and caregivers with specific questions or concerns.

The event is finished.
