Coping Skills for Traumatized Children

Parents and caregivers have access to free resources from Sesame Street in Communities to help them support children who have experienced trauma. The free materials include videos, books, and games. The new trauma resources focus on simple coping skills for “big feelings”—such as anger, anxiety, and sadness. The goal is to provide positive ways to connect children and the adults around them, regardless of the situation. For example, in one short video, Big Bird imagines himself in his comfy, cozy nest. In another, Rosita, a green monster Muppet, punches a pillow to let out her anger. Sesame’s human characters, Alan and Sophia, play the roles of nurturing, encouraging adults.
