The child life profession is a dynamic, challenging, and often competitive discipline that demands excellence from its practitioners. In traditional hospital settings and beyond, child life specialists are responding to a wide variety of complex issues by applying their unique body of knowledge and skills. As child life professionals are continually challenged to demonstrate their value and expertise to satisfy employer expectations, those individuals who have documented a basic mastery of child life theory and practice - and have the initiative to learn new skills - will become increasingly valuable to their organizations.
