Psychosocial Care of Children in Hospitals: A Clinical Practice Manual from the ACCH Child Life Research Project

by Richard H. Thompson John Wolfer Joy Goldberger Lisa Redburn Lesley Laidley Laura Gaynard

This manual describes the organization and development of a research-based child life program that was implemented at Phoenix Children's Hospital from 1985 to 1987, and it details the principles, guidelines, protocols, and practices that shaped the program. Although it has been written primarily for child life administrators, clinicians, educators, researchers, and students, it is also of value to health professionals from many other disciplines. The integration of theory and practice, the clinical detail, and the inclusion of specific examples are designed to help a//readers understand and learn from the ACCH Child Life Research Project's successful approach to psychosocial care of hospitalized children and their families.
