I’ve seen a few new child life blogs pop up recently, and I thought I should share them here. I’m always excited to see new child life voices and perspectives pop up in blogs and social media. I keep a list of CCLS blogs and sites on the sidebar, and I’m always on the lookout for more. So, if I’m missing a good child life read, please let me know!
Childlifeology is written by Stefani Tower; a Bank Street graduate, child life specialist and mom of 2. She covers a lot of different areas relevant for child life specialists, students and parents including book reviews, resources and psychosocial topics.
Caroline and Sydney are recent graduates and certified child life specialists. They share their experiences (one is starting her first child life job, the other is in grad school and teaching early childhood), tips for students starting the child life journey, and review lots of resources.
This site offers an international perspective on psychosocial care with information for health play specialists in the UK. Their role is very similar to child life in the US. You can learn about their higher education requirements, training, resources, and practice. It’s a very new site, so they are just now adding content. However, I’m looking forward to reading all about how a similar profession functions “across the pond”!
Let’s spread the love of all things child life by building a strong network of CCLS online! As always, like, share, follow and help our community grow…
