Pediatric Emotional Well-Being

Hospital stays and treatment can bring about moments of pain, uncertainty, and a lack of understanding for pediatric patients. Nevertheless, children have an extraordinary capacity to adapt to their surroundings — their imaginations and hopes and desires are their best tools for adjusting to any situation. Having a good emotional state and positive surroundings plays a key role for children in the effectiveness of treatment and posterior recovery.
