Providing Comfort and Support in a Strange Environment

Providing comfort and support in a strange environment

Child Life Specialists help children and their families cope with the stress and uncertainty of acute and chronic illness, injury, trauma, disability, loss and bereavement.

For a child, going to the doctor can be a scary experience, especially when it’s an emergency or when facing a chronic illness. It also can be stressful on parents. During these times, a child life specialist can play a powerful role in easing fears and anxiety for both children and their families.

So who is a child life specialist? What do they do? CentraCare Health has two Certified Child Life Specialists, Brittany Spah and Stephanie McNaughton, and they share about their role and why they love to do what they do.
