Children can be traumatised by healthcare experiences. They are subjected to an environment which they do not understand, nor have any control over. They are faced with many unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells and they must undergo frightening and often painful procedures.
The aim of this program is to empower Parents, Professionals and Youth Workers involved in the care of these children so that they can optimally support children when faced with painful challenges, illness and/or healthcare experiences. Information provided can be used to prepare children for different healthcare experiences and to help them understand what is happening to them.
Our recent challenge is to support children during the COVID-19 pandemic. You will find a number of resources at the link below:
