Learning Through Folds

Dishita K -

Hello Everyone!

This week I am continuing to follow up with the independent behavioral health centers that I have requested to distribute my survey to. I have also sent a follow up email to Banner Scottsdale to request their staff as well. I have not received any new responses to my survey from the staff of Banner Thunderbird’s pediatric behavioral health department but am hoping I could get another few in the coming weeks.  

When I went in for my internship, there was a slight change in the routine this week. The teacher who conducts the group sessions I help out in was not able to come in so instead of a quiet activity and game that the kids can choose between like usually there was a different set up. All the kids tried origami by looking at instructions from a book. Some kids tried to make water bombs while some tried to make dogs and butterflies. While they were working on origami, they were also watching Wreck it Ralph 2 on the TV. It was fun to attempt origami with the kids though most of my attempts ended up as fails.

Thank you,

                Dishita Kolla

    Hi Dishita! Perhaps it would help to have your on-site advisor from Banner Thunderbird send a follow up email to the staff to complete their surveys and maybe even a follow up email to the other facilities to encourage them to participate. I just want to make sure that you get results to start analyzing soon. - Mrs. Holtzman

    Hi Dishita! Why do you feel the origami did not work?
    Hi Dishi! Can you explain how these activities are helpful for patients with behavioral health issues?
