What Our Circle Members are Saying:

The PDU opportunities have been so beneficial and it’s great that it’s so convenient. I also really just love the community aspect. I work in a hospital with a very small “team” (there’s only two of us and we have no child life department or supervisor, so we pretty much do everything on top of our patient care) and it’s really great to have an opportunity to connect with other professionals when I need ideas, advice, etc. It’s been a breath of fresh air to have a safe space with a bunch of other specialists that “get it”. The supervision program was also SO valuable especially since I don’t have a supervisor at my hospital. It connected me with a group of professionals throughout the country that I feel have become a lifetime connection/friends. I honestly cannot say enough good things about the child life circle.

I was messaging to let you know how much I have loved this platform since joining. I personally joined for the PDU opportunities as I am up for recertification this October, but have been pleasantly surprised with how much I have utilized this platform. I recently went down to part-time at my role in the hospital after becoming a new mom and have been struggling with that professional transition, along with burnout from the field. This forum has provided me with new resources, the ability to connect with CCLS across different hospitals in a positive way, along with the PDU opportunities which have really helped me find my child life passion again.

Yes of course I’m staying! These webinars are totally amazing and so enlightening. It’s such a stark contrast to the [other] webinars which often feel like an echo chamber where we’re all teaching other child life specialists how to do the job they already do. They are so great and I love that you guys ask for suggestions for topics and go find speakers that align. I’ll one million percent be back. I also like that the webinars are available to watch whenever bc I’m not at a stage in life where I can always log in real time.

What Our Circle Members are Saying:

I am loving the clinical supervision! I also like the ease and accessibility of resources; books, therapeutic activities, preps, etc. The circle is big enough that there is a wide variety of expertise and feedback on many topics but small enough that I don’t feel overwhelmed when posting or seeking info.

What Our Circle Members are Saying:

I left the hospital setting 6 months ago and I am so thankful that Child Life Circle was created. In many ways this has become my own child life team. It is a space to connect, collaborate, and learn with and from one another. Child Life Circle has made my transition to the community based setting a smoother one with a feeling of support through every step along the way.
