Hi there! I’m talking to you. Yep, you right there! You’re probably wondering who created this blog. I’m Sarah and I love to play. I’m always looking for ways to be playful in life; through dancing, singing, acting, reading, telling jokes, and more! I like being creative, learning all that I can, and trying new things.
I started this blog for child life specialist who are looking for new ideas and reviews on different types of therapeutic activities to use in their practice. I highlight activities that use different modalities, including art, dance, music, theater, and more! I also review products that child life specialist might be able to utilize in therapeutic interventions.
This blog is also for caregivers who are looking to learn more about how to support children and teens in healthcare and beyond. And last but not least, I also write to child life students who are just starting out on their exciting journey. I hope they are able to glean some knowledge that will help them on this career path. To learn more about child life you can read my page on it here, or you can check out the child life council website at http://www.childlife.org.
For those of you who are interested in my educational background, I graduated from Bellarmine University with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Theater. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Child and Family Studies with an emphasis in Child Life from Texas State University. I completed a child life practicum at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and a child life internship at California Pacific Medical Center. Currently I am a Certified Child Life Specialist working in a free-standing children’s hospital.
If you have any questions about the field of child life or my experiences of becoming a child life specialist, drop me a line! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org So without further ado, I invite you to jump in and explore with a little playfulness!
