Fabulous Find Friday: Regional Child Life Groups

Going to the national conference is a great way for professionals and students alike to network and learn new things about the growing field of Child Life. But sometimes it’s not possible to attend due to costs or scheduling conflicts. Luckily, there are a variety of regional Child Life Groups around the United States that offer conferences, student seminars and PDUs. These resources are typically cheaper than the national conference and closer to where you live so you don’t have to travel as far or take as much time off of work.

Fabulous Find Friday: Child Life Connection

If you are a student, then you are going to love this Fabulous Find! Today’s Fabulous Find is Child Life Connection.

Child Life Connection works to spread awareness about Child Life. Their mission is below.

Child Life Connection brings play, diversion and education into pediatric settings, all in an effort to make being in the hospital less scary for children!

I first learned about this site because I took my Intro to Child Life Course from the founder, Belinda Hammond. I would encourage you to check out their page and also follow Child Life Connection on FB. As students, we should be looking for every educational opportunity possible to learn more about child life. Child Life Connection is a great place to get started.
