This Pediatrics “Rethinking” Seminar will examine how the ‘voice of the child’ matters in our clinical and research work. How might our approaches stifle children's voices? In this seminar we will confront our assumptions and practices, with the goal of resolving tensions, uncovering gaps and imagining future directions together.

Discussion

Closing Remarks

Chair: Tom Hutchinson

09:00 – 10:30

Ways of Viewing the World

We will describe Satir’s hierarchical and growth models and show the close association between these ways of seeing the world and the contrast between curing and healing in medicine and whole person care. Participants will be led in a process of recognizing their own ways of viewing the world as framework for their lives, the process of medical care, and the rest of the day.

11:00 - 12:30

Iceberg Metaphor

We will explain and explore the ice-berg metaphor and the communication stances as a way of getting to know our whole selves in more depth. This will include a didactic piece, a writing exercise, dyadic discussion, and role plays. We will attempt to uncover participants’ deep longings and yearnings as a source of energy for their work.

14:00 – 15:30

Parts Party

We will facilitate a parts party using one volunteer as the star and participants from the audience to play his/her parts. This will allow attendees to get in touch with and embrace parts of themselves that have been denied or rejected – a further step in discovering the whole person in whole person care.

16:00 – 17:30

Resilience and Whole Person Care

We will do a group exercise identifying the characteristics of an “ideal” healthcare worker and how this relates to resilience and burnout. We will explore the relationship of resilience to bringing our whole person to our work.

Given the framework of 4 levels of knowing (not knowing; knowing; realizing, actualizing) participants will be led in an exercise to review what they have learned during the day and begin to think of ways what they have learned can be actualized in their lives and work.

Co-Chairs: David Henderson and Leonie Herx
