Reconnecting with friends  and family after a hospital stay provides many kids with an easy way to return to normal life. However, for some, telling their peers about their injury or illness can be difficult. Potentially distressing memories, anxiety over looking different, and worry about others' perceptions of them causes some kids to socially withdraw after returning home from the hospital. The Center for Pediatric Traumatic Stress developed worksheets (available in English and Spanish) to help kids share their story, lessening their distress and anxiety, smoothing the transition back to life before their hospital stay.
