Children treated for oncological diseases spend weeks, or even months on hospitalization. That situation has a significant impact on their personal development, therefore there is a need of inventing and applying various therapeutic activities in order to challenge their minds, support them in that process, and make them self-motivated. The article presents Snoezelen method, and the general overview of practical applications of that therapy for different kinds of patient. Oncology departments have severe insufficiency in providing universal types of therapy, that could be commonly used in treatment of different kinds of patients, regardless of their age or disorder. The Snoezelen method seems to be an appropriate kind of therapy, directed towards young oncological patients.
