Dr Clown

In paediatric hospitals, therapeutic clowns meet children of all ages, from babies who are just a few weeks’ old, to young children and teenagers.  They have to adapt to different physical and psychological conditions as well as various cultures.

Hospitalized children have to face the tedious and often painful routine of treatments associated with their condition.  Added to this is getting used to an environment that is strange and unknown to them, sometimes away from their parents and personal comforts.

In line with the health-care plan, where every action is measured, the clown offers free and spontaneous play.  They bring life and the license to be a child back to the five-year old, the three-month old baby, as well as to the adult staff who take care of them.

Our Dr Clown interventions always aim to empower children by offering them a choice. The child has the freedom to decline the visit of the clowns. By accepting this refusal, the clowns help build a feeling of freedom and mutual trust.  Also through role play or improvisation, patients can express negative feelings such as pent up frustration from days or weeks of hospitalisation. This can be as therapeutic as a smile or a burst of laughter.
