Is your child preparing for surgery?
Have they undergone treatment or medical procedures early in their lives?
Are they living with an on-going condition that requires medical attention or care?
And are you in a position where you need to support them through these challenges?
Watch as Hand in Hand Parenting Instructor Johanna Berglain explains how she uses five practical caregiving tools to support children emotionally when they have medical needs.
These tools have been shown to bring calm, courage and healing when health is or has been concern.
In this talk, Johanna reveals:
- How to guide a child through challenging circumstances, even when you are fearful and worried yourself.
- A one-to-one play tool that helps children gain new confidence and resilience.
