What is in a name? As it turns out a lot! We are changing the name of our Massage for Medically Complex Children to Massage for Pediatric Patients to clarify that this training covers techniques for both children and infants.
Our next Children’s Program training for this year is scheduled for Friday, December 6-8th. Massage for Pediatric Patients prepares volunteers to provide massage and caring touch to babies and children at our partner hospitals and hospice.
The training examines the unique challenges and opportunities that come with working with children in a hospital or hospice setting. Because children are at various levels of development, participants will explore what this means for the massage therapist. In addition, the training provides an introduction to the essentials for working in a medical environment and to the types of equipment that volunteers may encounter. Additional considerations include issues of pain, volunteer boundaries, and dealing with terminal illnesses.
On Sunday morning participants will meet at a local children’s hospital to tour their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Rehabilitation Services Department.
The hours on Friday are from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 6:30pm. The fee is $250.00. Through a generous grant from the Fred & June MacMurray Foundation, a $100.00 refund is available to those who actively volunteer for three months at one of our partner hospitals or hospice.
An application form is available here. For more information, call Jennifer at 310-391-2558 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Heart Touch Technique Training is scheduled for October 18th – 20th.
The Heart Touch Technique Training empowers participants to use their gift of touch in the most powerful way possible: to help alleviate the pain and isolation of the most ill and isolated individuals in our community.
If you would like to share and nurture your gift of touch, please join us at the next Heart Touch Training. Volunteering is optional and not a requirement to take the training. Upon completion of the training, participants can choose to be assigned to one our partner hospices. Volunteer opportunities are available in the Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino County and Ventura County.
The training fee is $250. Financial assistance is available. Twenty continuing education hours available for massage therapists, registered nurses and chaplains.
