Psychological Support for Children Undergoing Long-Term Treatment in Isolation

255

Abstract

The article presents the experience of specialists working with children who are on long-term treatment in hospitals. Due to the pandemic, children in hospitals were placed in “double” isolation. Not only have they become separated from their usual lifestyle due to their stay in the hospital, but their contacts inside the hospital in quarantine conditions have become significantly limited. Psychologists, teachers, and speech pathologists of hospital schools were forced to switch to a remote format of work. The article analyzes the features, limitations and advantages of this format of work with children in stationary conditions.
