Empowering children through play

It’s Child Life Therapy Week across Sydney Children's Hospitals Network and we are celebrating the important role Child Life Therapists play in supporting children, preparing them for their hospital stay, procedures and treatments.

Child Life Therapists aim to minimise the stress and anxiety that hospitalisation may cause, assisting children and young people to develop resilience and positive self-esteem by addressing their developmental and psychosocial needs.
