Therapeutic play is a specific approach to engage children, because it is a developmentally sensitive way to communicate and facilitate expression of the child’s thoughts and feelings, and may be applied to medical and health care settings and experiences. Therapeutic medical play may also be used proactively to prepare children before and to debrief after medical encounters, and using specific approaches during procedural phases.

This two day workshop integrates knowledge of paediatric medical and health care, childhood development and therapeutic play. It has been developed to extend the clinical skills of health care professionals who work with children and their families in health care settings.
