March is Child Life Month and it’s Women’s History Month, so today I want to share with you a little bit more information about Emma Plank. Emma Plank was a leader in the field of Child Life during the second half of the 20th century. In 1962, she published Working with Children in Hospitals: A Guide for the Professional Team. This book would later help shape the Child Life Profession. For more information about her life and legacy, visit Transatlantic Perspectives: Emma Plank.
