Children & Teens: Individual & Family Support

We have a Child Life Specialist on staff to work individually with children, teens and their family to address their unique psychosocial needs when cancer is in the family.  

An Our Clubhouse Family Individual and Family Support Sessions are available and are tailored to the needs and goals of the family as well as at the developmental level of the child. 

Topics that can be reviewed in these sessions include (but are not limited to):

  • Educating children and teens about cancer, its treatments, side effects, etc...
  • Preparing children and teens for medical encounters or hospital visits
  • Anticipatory grief support for children and teens facing an impending death
  • Facilitating positive coping skills using art, play and other modalities

In addition, we also offer support groups for children and teens in treatment, or for those who have a loved one in treatment.
