Simulation helps learners conceptualize and apply knowledge through experiential learning and shared reflection. Children and families, as well as professionals who work with these populations, can benefit from simulation-based education. Child life specialists' skills in interprofessional collaboration, developmentally appropriate language and preparation, child- and family-centered care, and emotional safety provide them with a solid foundation as simulation educators and facilitators. By developing their knowledge of the learning theories underpinning simulation as well as scenario design, simulation environments and modalities, psychological safety, and debriefing, child life specialists can incorporate simulation into their roles. This chapter provides an overview of simulation concepts and methods while exploring the intersection of simulation with child life practice. The chapter also identifies ways that child life specialists can contribute to simulations for children and youth, parents and caregivers, child life students and professionals, and interprofessional teams.
