"The process of creating and personalizing a blank, stuffed, body-shaped doll can provide children with a pleasurable and expressive activity which can be used by the child life team in many ways.
Children decorate the dolls with non-toxic permanent markers. The dolls become a part of the treatment process and children take them home with them when they are discharged.
Child life specialists use the dolls to:
Help develop rapport with children and help them relax in a hospital environment.
Help assess the child's perception and feelings about healthcare experiences - talking about the doll is a non-threatening way to explore the child's own concerns.
Help children prepare for and cope with their treatment process - the doll can be used to show such things as where an injection will be given or what posture/body position is desired. If a child will be getting an IV, we allow the child to 'play doctor' and participate in giving the doll an IV as well. It helps them understand as well as be prepared and know what to expect.
Thanks again for thinking of the children here at Sunrise! The Child Life Staff.
These are always needed if you want to continue making muslin dolls for such a worthy cause.
