Has your child been diagnosed with a medical illness? Is your child struggling with multiple appointments and medical procedures? Are you and your child struggling with fear of procedures like needles and blood work? Is your child afraid to go to appointments with the doctor or the dentist? Perhaps your child is reactive or emotionally disconnected when it comes time to go to a clinic or hospital for physical care? Are you looking for support with helping your child understand health care procedures?
Health care experiences can be intimidating for adults let alone children of various ages. While some children are not impacted by procedures and the healthcare field, others develop sensitivities and fears associated with appointments and procedures. During this workshop we will explore child friendly ways to explain necessary procedures to children, community resources to help, and coping strategies to empower children and their parents as they navigate healthcare experiences.
