What can I expect from Ariadne services?
If you agree to your child's participation in Ariadne Project, you will be asked to sign a consent form for his/her participation. The signing process needs to be completed before the first meeting with the Psychologist.
- During the first meeting with the child, the Psychologist will conduct an interview to collect sufficient information on the child's feelings and what he/she knows about the patient's condition. In addition, a small assessment will take place using a questionnaire with standardized questions
- Throughout your child's psychological support, the Psychologist will inform you and guide you, through regular parental counseling, on how to best handle your child
The Psychologists will implement a number of methodological interventions which are evidence-based practices related on how to handle children whose loved one is hospitalized in the ICU. Therefore, your child receives the proper psychosocial support based on the situation and his/her needs.
