Sesame Street's Traumatic Experiences: https://sesamestreetincommunit...aumatic-experiences/
When a child endures a traumatic experience, the whole family feels the impact. But adults hold the power to help lessen its effects. Several factors can change the course of kids’ lives: feeling seen and heard by a caring adult, being patiently taught coping strategies and resilience-building techniques, and being with adults who know about the effects of such experiences. Here are ways to bring these factors to life.
First 5 of California Association's Care, Cope, Connect: http://first5association.org/care-cope-connect/
A new resource is now available to help the growing number of families in California tackling heightened community stress. The Care, Cope, Connect resource, created by Sesame Street in Communities in collaboration with the First 5 Association of California, helps parents cope with stress and provide safety and security for their children.
In California, nearly half of all children under the age of 17 have immigrant parents and 46 percent of households with children report experiencing a significant traumatic experience. First 5s are committed to helping parents weather these stressful situations and mitigate impacts on young children’s development, health, and learning.
The following resources may be helpful for organizations working with families across California. To get connected with local resources, find your county on this map.
