The clinical approach followed in this series is based on evidence-based clinical modalities that have been proven to decrease the intensity and frequency of traumatic stress symptoms in children.
There are several substories intertwined with the main storyline of our hero; Saleem’s displacement and the beginning of a new life for him and his family. Utilizing the bibliotherapy and KIDNET modality, several stories of survival and resilience are told, as part of the psychosocial support Saleem receives. This allows this series, ‘The Map, the Compass, and the Anchor’, to expand out of a one dimensional story of displacement and adjustment, engaging the viewer in diverse aspects of life’s challenges and difficulties.
Besides offering help to children in need of psychosocial support, one of the goals of the Amal series, is to generate awareness and empathy within host communities and society at large, highlighting the positive role of supportive communities.
