Research Article of International Journal of Pediatric Research and Reviews STORYTELLING AS A RESOURCE FOR HUMANIZATION AND COPING WITH PAIN Mônica de Oliveira Osório*1 Carina Elisabeth Alcântara Trindade2, Geisa Sousa3, Larissa Cano4, Maria Vitória Cavalcanti Osório5 Background: Child hospitalization is potentially a traumatic situation for the child, causing a break in his daily routine, habits of hygiene, sleep and food.

For storytelling, one can use the book as support or not to interact and actively insert the child into what is being narrated. Conclusion: The experience of storytelling by relaxing ...

Methodology: This discussion was constructed from a reported experience in the toy library of a general hospital in Recife/PE. Results: Through the practice in the hospital toy library, it could be noticed that the companions are agents who also need to be taken care during the process of hospitalization in pediatrics. In this context, the toy library is a place that can favor the integral care of hospitalized children and their companions, through playful, musical, theatrical, sharing experiences. Final considerations: The toy library can be a humanized care environment not only for the children, but also for their companions, because, through various possibilities of play, it is a place that facilitates the social interactions between these individuals, as well as their autonomy and creativity, which are so important in the process of seeking the reestablishment of patients’ health as biopsychosocial subjects.
