Student & Educators Symposium

GLACLP 2021 Student Summer Series 

This is a live event only. No sessions will be recorded.

This year the GLACLP is partnering with Riley Children’s Health to provide an incredible opportunity for all child life students, educators, and any professionals working with child life students. 

The Student Summer Series is a virtual three-part event spread throughout May, June, and July. The initial kick-off event will be available to both students and educators on May 11, while the student-only follow-up events will be June 8 and July 13. The first 50 students (both GLACLP members and non-members) will receive a medical play kit that will be used in the July event. 

This mini-series will address topics such as self-care, boundaries, clinical supervision, diversity in the field, and the journey to becoming a child life specialist! There will also be opportunities for networking and panel discussions, as well as a virtual swag bag with local resources and discounts.  

Registration opens April 12 and closes May 7. You can find more information regarding dates, program schedule, and presenters at the registration link here:
