I wanted to share with you all this wonderful and thought-provoking article I read about how one child life specialist sees her relationships with her patients and families. I love how she talks about the importance of play and how it is so instrumental in helping us develop relationships with patients, who can then trust us to lead them through whatever they are facing. I really love the story she tells of meeting one of her patients outside of the hospital and how she was struck by the way the patient introduced her to her friends. I hope that my patients see me in a similar light. I want them to see me as someone who truly cares for them and wants them to not just focus on the medical side of things, but who they are as unique individuals with their own stories to tell. This article is definitely worth a read! You can click the link here or paste the web address in you browser!
