I attended a conference session, “Responding to Fear: Using Narrative Techniques to Empower Patients and Families”, and it was a great reminder of the therapeutic power of storytelling. As part of the session, the presenters asked us to remember what it felt like to start out as a new child life specialist and write down a tip or bit of advice to share. This really got me thinking about what helped me on the hard days and what I needed to be present in my work. What began as thoughts for my younger self resulted in words I want to take to heart now. What advice would you share with your newbie self? What do you want to remember today?
