Registered Provider Program
Data-Driven Validation of EffectivenessThe Wonders & Worries model of support is the only formal curriculum-based intervention that has been validated by a randomized clinical trial. In addition, it has been subject to an evaluative process that anecdotally has proven its value to families confronting an adult’s illness. This evaluative and anecdotal information was received through a formalized evaluation process. Further, in 2019, The Association of Child Life Professionals published a Position Statement supporting child life specialists and their work with the children of adult patients. This position paper coupled with the clinically-validated Wonders & Worries curriculum will be valuable tools for any clinician seeking to propose services to their organization.
Ongoing Support to Promote Program SuccessRegistration will allow for use of a validated intervention as well as ongoing support, consultation, and access to newly created resources to serve the families in your community. A partnership with Wonders & Worries will not only afford you access to all our current leading-edge curriculum and materials, but also provide you access to support from our program team, both in group format as well as in the form of an individual consultation. In addition, your organization will benefit from our ongoing significant investments in curriculum development, clinical research, product development, and branding – all included in your registration fees.
