    Child life specialists use developmental theories to assess patients and plan interventions on a daily basis. However, as a profession, we have to yet to explore the history of developmental theories and examine why the most commonly used theories were created by “Old White Men.” This webinar will allow viewers to learn about child development through the lens of black theorists, who provide richer insight into the developmental processes and challenges of black youth. Understanding developmental frameworks from perspectives of BIPOC scholars who have studied child development in black and minority youth will allow child life specialists to better assess the needs of black children and their families who are hospitalized or facing other crises. Furthermore, when child life specialists can broaden their assessment skills, the planning and implementation of appropriate interventions and the ability to form meaningful, trusting, therapeutic relationships with families of color will become an additional skill set that specialists can offer in the healthcare field.

    There is no question that the past two years have produced unprecedented challenges for healthcare workers. Amidst ever changing protocols, social tensions, and political strife, medical professionals, including child life specialists, are reporting significant levels of burnout, emotional exhaustion, and, ultimately, job turnover. Much of the compassion fatigue literature has historically placed emphasis on self-care methods that embrace positive emotions while suppressing their negative counterpart, but could there be a better way? Using the groundbreaking work of best selling-authors and researchers Emily and Amelia Nagoski ("Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle"), and Susan David ("Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive"), this webinar provides a framework for re-examining the so called ‘negative’ emotions of the profession; avoiding the pitfalls of toxic positivity; and embracing emotional agility as an agent for adaptive coping.
