Child life professionals make a world of difference not only to sick children, but also to their worried family members. They bring highly specialized skills to their practice, helping children and families understand the child’s illness, reduce the anxiety that accompanies it, and educate themselves about the strategies they will need to cope with one of the most stressful of life circumstances.
