I lecture to nurses, hospitals and healthcare organizations on how to effectively work with frightened children in a variety of medical environments. I am a 1977 graduate of the Millard Fillmore School of Professional Nursing in Buffalo New York and have been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years. I have experience in Intensive Care, Emergency Room nursing and supervision, and at the Ruth and Billy Graham Childrens Health Center. Currently I work in pediatric endocrinology at the Mission Childrens Reuters Center and in health education in Asheville, NC. I am actively involved in teaching injection and blood testing skills to children and their families, where the children are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The law of expectations occurs as an almost mandatory pre-curser when applied to the art of self-healing. This law states: What the mind believes tends to be realized. Much of what we believe has a direct, immediate impact on how the course of healing unfolds, progresses and realizes itself. In fact, we may go to extremes to create that realization. We will look for a specific object, brand or person until we find our way of justifying and concretizing our beliefs. This article reports on the experiences of two young children who were fearful of a medical procedure and how they were helped to overcome their fears.
