Focus on deficits masks a child's beauty

A highlight of the ethics conference at Montreal Children's Hospital was a parent panel. Nathalie Bouchard, above, was one of those parents. Here she talks about how a medical focus on deficits harms the relationship between parent and child. Nathalie was interviewed in a playroom at the hospital. I'm happy to report that shortly after this interview a tiny dog was brought in for 'pet therapy' and there were no more tears! Thank you Nathalie!
