Did you know that parents may exhibit lifelong stress symptoms from having a baby in the NICU?
The technologically-intense, high stakes environment of the NICU can be stressful for parents and families.
Research has suggested that NICU parents may experience an acute stress disorder that parallels post-traumatic stress disorder and is seen in behaviors and reactions such as avoidance, denial, grief, hopelessness or depression.
NICU nurses and staff are in a strategic position to assist parents and families coping with the potentially overwhelming hospitalization experience. Journaling offers a means to encourage safe reflection on and reconciliation of the NICU hospitalization experience.
Join us and learn how you can change the life of a family through journaling.
Our Learning Objectives:
- Identify three sources of stress for NICU parents and families
- List three potential benefits from journaling for NICU parents and families
- Describe three journaling methods that can be utilized by NICU parents and families
