Supporting Hospitalized Adolescents Through Self-Expressive Interventions
“I’m fine.” “I don’t want to talk about it.” Silence. These are the responses child life specialists may hear when working with hospitalized adolescents. In this presentation, attendees will gain knowledge about the benefits of self-expressive interventions for adolescents based on current research. Through discussion and hands-on opportunities, participants will learn a variety of interventions to incorporate into clinical practice.
