Medical Play

Blank cloth dolls, some markers, and some medical supplies are a great way to start the conversation with your child.

Consultations include two 45 minute information and solution-based conversations with those who are caring directly for an infant, child or adolescent who is also a medical patient. These consultations are also appropriate for parents who are facing a serious illness of their own and would like personalized support in explaining to their children in an age-appropriate way, or helping their children cope with the upcoming changes.

Topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to:

  • Assessment and Feedback regarding the child's coping and understanding of the illness or condition

  • Coping Strategy Design for separation from caregivers, medical procedures, surgeries, anticipated loss

  • Psychological Preparation for medical procedures or major changes

  • School Re-Entry, helping teachers explain and prepare classmates for a child returning to the classroom after a new diagnosis or life-changing medical procedure

  • Warning Signs and Red Flags that a child is not coping well and may need further intervention

Meeting quarterly in the hills above Soave, Italy, women of all ages and backgrounds gather to speak and be heard, to hold safe and sacred space for one another through structure, intentional speaking, deep listening, and a little gentle yoga. Following the circle time, we share a potluck meal and celebrate with gratitude. Next circle meets the afternoon/evening of December 21st, 2019.

In the space between circles, we meet virtually, using Zoom or Google. Days and times vary to allow women from different time zones and lifestyles participate.

Vibrant Women's Virtual Circle

If you are craving deeper connection with women of all ages and stages, this is a wonderful way to do it, especially for those who find it difficult to get away to an in-person circle or who are not in close enough proximity to do so. There is a host, facilitator, guardian, and timekeeper in each circle. Leadership rotates between core members.  Contact Carolyn if interested in participating.
