Creative Arts Therapy
As innovators in child and family centered care, Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy are essential components of the SickKids experience.
These programs support the developmental, social, and expressive needs of children and families experiencing illness and hospitalization. They are integrated into the inter-professional teams that provide a patient’s care, and provide interventions and support across the spectrum of health promotion, targeted prevention and clinical treatment.
Creative Arts Therapy currently consists of two programs available across the Hospital, music therapy and therapeutic clowning.
Our goal is to have a comprehensive program that responds to the unique needs of patients and their families by connecting, enriching and supporting them through their experience. We will be expanding the scope and variety of our therapeutic services as philanthropic funding becomes available.
