#DreamDoctors #medicalclowns at Ziv #Hospital were part of two very special events last month: At the Annual Juvenile #Diabetes Conference of the Brainin Center for Juvenile Diabetes and Endocrinology, led by Dr. Orna Dali-Gottfried (pictured), Dream Doctors Tal Stein and Shoshi Ofir served as greeters during the opening of the conference and assisted hospital staff and participants throughout the events. And when a delegation from #Latvia arrived for the Annual Conference of the #Israel #Orthopedics Association, Dream Doctor Shoshi Ofir was part of the group that welcomed the special guests. These are great examples of how integrated Dream Doctors are into the hospital's staff and we are proud of our medical clowns for being selected as representatives of the hospital for these important conferences!

"Вокруг одного шута всегда было много народа. Все они смеялись над его шутками и пантомимами. Шут казался очень веселым, пока… Во время одного из представлений из его глаз не потекли безостановочно слезы. Люди подумали, что это просто еще один номер из программы, и захлопали в ладоши. Шут улыбнулся, вытер слезы и продолжил играть дальше. На следующий день история повторилась. И так было каждое выступление – у шута начинали течь из глаз слезы. И он ничего, ничего не мог с собой поделать! А люди продолжали считать, что так и надо, пока одна маленькая девочка, пришедшая посмотреть на шута, не подошла к нему и не спросила, отчего он так горько плачет. Все вокруг засмеялись и стали наперебой объяснять девочке, что это всего лишь еще один трюк шута. А сам шут просто стоял и смотрел в серьезные глаза ребенка, не обращавшего внимания на остальных и продолжавшего глядеть на него и ждать ответа. Тогда шут грустно улыбнулся и сказал девочке, что просто его одиночество не в силах оставаться в его душе и ищет выхода наружу, проливаясь в невольных слезах…" Дана Рассветных 🎗#слова #клоуны #жизньклоуна #медицинскийклоун #мойфевраль #детство #ярядом #чтобынестрашно #тельавив #february #winter #clown #telaviv #medicalclowns 💟

Three of the #clowns who have been participating in #DreamDoctors collaborative training with the #RedCross in #Germany came to visit us in #Israel! They shadowed #medicalclowns in several #hospitals and learned new techniques to take back home with them. The training program in Stuttgart has been preparing #volunteers to work with #Syrian #refugees, to help them better integrate into their new home. After the program's conclusion in March, we will share another update!

Our friends at Meir #Hospital made a great #video, starring our very own Nadav Yalon, to prepare #parents for what their #children will experience when being admitted to the hospital for #surgery. It also shows how integrated #DreamDoctors #medicalclowns are in the entire process, making it much less stressful for everyone involved. Visit our Facebook page (link in bio) to watch! ידידינו במרכז הרפואי מאיר הכינו סרטון נהדר בכיכובו של נדב שלנו, המכין הורים וילדים לתהליך שיעברו בעת הגעה לניתוח בבית החולים. הסרטון מראה עד כמה משולבים רופאי חלום בכל התהליך, ובכך מקלים את הלחץ ואי הוודאות עבור כל המעורבים. מקווים שתיהנו!

Visit our Facebook page (link in bio) to read a wonderful article (in French) from La Voix #Sépharde, the #Jewish voice of #Montreal. Journalist Sylvie Halpern interviewed our Executive Director, Tsour Shriqui, and one of the very first #DreamDoctors, Jerome Arous, to gain their insight on the founding and history of the Dream Doctors Project as well as what makes Dream Doctors #medicalclowns unique.

We are proud to share that another study sponsored by the #DreamDoctors #Research Fund has been #published! Dr. Noam Meiri​, Dream Doctors Amichi Ankri and Itay Nahmias​, and a team of #researchers from Carmel #Hospital and the #Techion #University evaluated the use of #med#medicalclown> during the examinations of young #children in the #EmergencyRoom. In addition to finding that the presence of a #medicalclown improved the ability of 94% of participating #pediatricians to conduct a complete examination and determine pathological findings, 95% of the caregivers accompanying their children to the #ER reported that they would request a medical clown during their child's future exams. Studies like this are a great measure of success in our field and help promote the profession of medical clowning worldwide. We invite you to read the full article on our Facebook page (link in bio).

#DreamDoctor Shoshi Ofir has been busy the last few weeks giving #lectures across the country. At the #Israeli Association for #Infant #MentalHealth 's Conference on the "#Emotional #Wellbeing of #Hospitalized Infants" at the #TelAviv Academic College, she presented "#Clowning Seriously", a behind-the-scenes look at professional medical clowning within the #hospital framework including #casestudies from the field. At the second International #Conference "#Child Maltreatment in Context", hosted by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Haruv Institute and Myers JDC Brookdale Institute, Shoshi spoke along with Dr. Nessia Lang-Franco, her colleague at Poriya Hospital. During a session on #intervention programs, they explained how #medicalclowns can reduce situational #anxiety during invasive #examinations of #children who have been sexually #abu#abuse>. Shoshi is a pioneer in this field and we are so grateful for the work she has done to advance the profession of medical clowning in Israel as well as the benefits of therapeutic medical clowning for young #survivors of #abuse. We're all looking forward to the next lecture!

My Thursday video, “The Medical Clowns” is now live! Link in my bio! Summary below: - The halls of a hospital don’t typically ring out with the sounds of ukuleles, applause, and laughter. Hospital rooms aren’t usually where you find dancing goblins, cuddly panthers, and bubbles. But the Medical Clown Project, which provides therapeutic medical clowning as an integrated component of care for adult and pediatric patients, is changing that…

Thank U to the medical clowns from @IClownYou for visiting our patients this week! The project creators brought the clowns to UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital to show not only that clowns are not scary, but that they are brave and artful performers who challenge the rules and create human connections no matter who the audience is, no matter what the circumstances are. #clownweek #childlife #medicalclowns @israelstudiesucla

#DreamDoctor Hagar Hofesh was part of a #research project at #Barzilai Medical Center to see how #doctors and #nurses respond to the work of #medicalclowns on a regular basis as well as during times of war. This research, presented during the "Research Day" poster session at the #hospital earlier this week, showed that: Most of the medical and nursing staff enjoy the activities of medical clowns in the ward in routine and #emergency situations. And according to the nurses' perception, and because of the positive effects found, they must continue to support the clown's activity in the department. Thanks to all of the wonderful medical clowns and medical staff at Barzilai Hospital for all that you do to care for the children! We value this partnership and look forward to further results from the research.

Back in Israel, #DreamDoctor Iris Lia Sofer was a featured #speaker at a #training for phone #volunteers of The #Israel Cancer Association. The Mercaz Telemeda program offers those affected by #cancer a valuable resource for information and support. Its volunteers gather several times each year for a lecture or workshop by a medical professional, to learn something new about cancer treatment and other related topics. The group was "enchanted" and "fascinated" by charming Dream Doctor "Olive Emla" who demonstrated for them the hard work, imagination and humanity that #medicalclowns must have to bring comfort and relief to children with cancer and their families. Thank you, Iris, for representing the Dream Doctors Project and the profession of therapeutic #medicalclowning so well!!
