CDH Seminar with Project Sunshine "Project Sunshine's TelePlay: Creating peer-to-peer connections and reducing anxiety through play"
Project Sunshine is a 20+ year old international nonprofit that harnesses the healing power of play to serve children undergoing serious medical challenges. Before COVID, Project Sunshine’s trained volunteers would go into hospitals to engage children in collaborative games, imaginative crafts and activities to promote relaxation and mindfulness. In response to volunteer restrictions at hospitals beginning in March 2020, Project Sunshine developed a new program delivery method, TelePlay. TelePlay connects children and families through our trained volunteers, via a HIPPA-compliant Zoom platform. This new program has allowed Project Sunshine to reach new populations of children and families and has provided an opportunity to measure the health outcomes of our programs for the first time. Preliminary results show a reduction in anxiety for the participants involved and over the course of the next year we’re looking to demonstrate that TelePlay programming is effective in reaching this desired outcome.
