Bringing Hope to Children
We aspire to bring hope and empowerment to children impacted by traumatic events and toxic stress, through our innovative media projects.
THE AMAL ANIMATION SERIES
An entertaining and hope-filled children’s adventure series, comprising 9 episodes, designed to raise awareness about mental health. Our aim is to educate children and help them develop coping skills for dealing with symptoms of PTSD, toxic stress, depression and anxiety. This series and resources provide caregivers practitioners with psychosocial support tools, as they reach out to children under their care.
The therapy modality adopted in this series, includes principles and practices from evidence-based therapies such as the children’s version of Narrative Exposure Therapy (KidNET) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and it draws from family systems and pain management theories. These therapy modalities have been proven to be effective in decreasing the intensity of symptoms of PTSD and toxic stress in children.
Languages and Adaptation
Currently the Amal Animation Series ‘The Map, the Compass and the Anchor’ is in Arabic and English. The accompanying resources are in Arabic and English.
Creating the series in other languages is in the pipeline, as we believe that the universal themes of this story make it relevant and meaningful to children anywhere.
The Amal Animation Series may be beneficial to various types of entities and organizations who offer care for children, such as schools, children’s centers, after school programs, faith-based organizations, NGO’s and government programs. The series is suitable for children between the ages of 8 and 14.
