Thinking of transitioning out of the hospital and working with children and families in the community? Maybe you would like to work in palliative care, private practice, non-profit, court system or another setting using your child life skills. There are endless possibilities to our profession, you just need to have the passion and drive to try something new.
My colleagues and I will be presenting on this topic at the Child Life Council Conference in Orlando. Be sure to register and save your spot to gather valuable information on how we broke the mold and transitioned into community work at Adoption Journey’s, non-profit organization Team IMPACT and private practice. Learn how to assess your community’s needs, operationalize your role and overcome challenges to work with families in a non-traditional setting.
