Spring is here and the sun is shining in Houston! I can’t believe it’s April. My husband and I went to Charleston, SC for a week of vacation in March and it’s been a whirlwind ever since. The week away was the first “true” vacation we’ve had in a long time, as most of the time one of us is attending a conference or has some other reason for traveling. We wanted a relaxing vacation and spring weather and Charleston didn’t disappoint. We ate great food, walked through the streets of the Old City, had a picnic on the beach at Sullivan’s Island, toured a new distillery, and enjoyed the charm of a quiet bed and breakfast. It was blissful and hard to come back…
But, some fun and wonderful opportunities are coming up at the end of April. The most exciting of which is my first CLC webinar! Genevieve Lowry of Practical Parenting Solutions and I are collaborating to offer “Playing to Your Strengths in Private Practice”. We will be sharing a bit of information about the fun and challenge of self-employment in child life. So, if you are interested in learning more about how we approach private practice and working in the community, please join us! I’m listing the learning outcomes from the CLC below, and you can find more information on the webinar page.
Playing to Your Strengths in Private Practice
April 23, 2014
2:30-4:00pm Eastern time
Participants will be able to describe two different approaches to working as a child life private practitioner
- Participants will be able to identify areas of interest based on professional strengths
- Participants will be able to assess community needs
- Participants will understand the differences and challenges of hospital versus community environments

Hope you can add your voice to the digital conversation, and share how child life might grow beyond the hospital in your community!
