Meredith Cooper, Wonders & Worries co-founder

Our professional child life staff are part of a growing trend of certified child life specialists (CCLS) working in community-based, non-traditional roles. (Most often you find CCLS in hospitals).

Join a webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 16 at  1:30 p.m. CT with Meredith Cooper, Courtney Mergen and Shani Gury Thornton, aka Child Life Mommy,  to learn how it all works!

In the webinar, three panelists will share their experiences working in:  a non-profit organization focusing on children of adult patients, a freestanding outpatient ENT clinic, and a private practice serving families in their home environment.

Learn how to assess the community’s needs, provide ethical services, and overcome challenges as you continue to grow professionally.
