Child Life Program

UC Davis’ Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy department helps to minimize the anxiety of hospitalization, increase understanding and strengthen coping skills while helping children to continue their typical growth and development.

Your gift will be used by our art and music therapists to utilize the creative arts to promote healing by offering tools for self-expression while children cope with symptoms, stress or traumatic experiences. The department includes a full-time school teacher, a playroom coordinator and many volunteers. Funds are also used to provide play materials at each child’s bedside and supplies for the teen and children’s playrooms.
