Weaving Creative Arts Modalities into Child Life Practice

EDUC 827
The therapeutic uses of play and creative arts modalities are at the heart of child life practice. In this course, students explore the use of a wide range of specific arts and play modalities to address the psychosocial needs of children, adolescents, and families in health care environments. Students engage actively in experiential processes, lectures, and clinical case discussions to develop skills and knowledge related to developmentally grounded creative arts interventions. Prerequisites: EDUC 821 and EDUC 824.
