Master of Science in Child Life

Another #FamilyFriday video in partnership with @musckids ! Going on a nature walk encourages children, teens, and families to get outdoors and explore! Once you’ve gathered enough materials, go inside and create anything you’d like out of the items you’ve gathered.

It’s another #FamilyFriday in partnership with MUSC ! Our second year student, Nicole, developed an obstacle course that you can make with items inside your home! This activity can be made accessible for every child and adolescent!

Happy #TherapeuticPlayThursday ! Our second year students facilitated non-directive and directive therapeutic play activities back in the Spring. Some of the activities included decorating pillow cases for patients to personalize their hospital room and blowing paint bubbles to practice breathing! 🏥 🎨

Comment your favorite therapeutic play activity!

In partnership with MUSC, our second year students created activities for children and families to do at home or outside! In this video, Sarah encourages families to participate in an at home Teddy Bear Clinic! 🐻

Playing with playdoh has many benefits. It encourages child directed play, fosters development, and caters to all age groups! This picture is from when our students facilitated play activities in the waiting area at the Summey Medical Pavilion.

#ThrowbackThursday to when our students got the opportunity to practice preparing a child/teen for an IV. This was one of their first experiences with a medical play doll!

As you are preparing to enter the field of child life (no matter what stage you are in), take a moment to remind yourself that you are able & you are enough! 🌟

It’s only been 2 weeks and we already miss our students! Looking forward to August where we will be reunited and welcoming our first years!

Happy 4th! 🇱🇷

Today’s #MotivationMonday is meant to inspire you to self reflect. It is important to understand that our actions, no matter how big or how small, make a difference. This is crucial to remember when interacting with patients and families. I hope that reading this encourages you to put thought into how you interact with someone today.

#ThoughtfulThursday “The patient will never care how much you know, until they know how much you care”. As future CCLS, we know how important it is to build rapport with patients and families. Let’s remember how important it is to show that we care before telling them how much we know!

🚨It's never too early to talk about race.🚨

"Adults often think they should avoid talking with young children about race or racism because doing so would cause them to notice race or make them racist. In fact, when adults are silent about race or use "colorblind" rhetoric, they actually reinforce racial prejudice in children. Starting at a very young age, children see patterns — who seems to live where; what kinds of homes they see as they ride or walk through different neighborhoods; who is the most desirable character in the movies they watch; who seems to have particular jobs or roles at the doctor's office, at school, at the grocery store; and so on — and try to assign "rules" to explain what they see. Adults' silence about these patterns and the structural racism that causes them, combined with the false but ubiquitous "American Dream" narrative that everyone can achieve anything that they want through hard work, results in children concluding that the patterns they see "must have been caused by meaningful inherent differences between groups." In other words, young children infer that the racial inequities they see are natural and justified. So despite good intentions, when we fail to talk openly with our children about racial inequity in our society, we are in fact contributing to the development of their racial biases, which studies show are already in place.” (Dr. Erin Winkler, 2017)

Here’s some advice for talking to children about why they are unable to see their grandparents during this time!
