The Tales of the Golden Acorn are a series of freely accessible animated short films being created to help educate and empower young people who are directly or indirectly impacted by trauma. The Tales are a collection of stories about loss, struggle, and hope — and the challenges we contend with in the wake of trauma. The series focuses on the effects, issues, and strategies for living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in a family setting.
While the subject-matter is weighty and serious, the Tales have been created specifically for young people - and are designed to bring the viewer on a journey of adventure, wonder, and discovery. Each 7 to 10 minute animation has been carefully crafted by a team of artists, writers, and subject matter experts in the fields of developmental and clinical child psychology and trauma counseling for children 5 years of age and older.
Though intended for young people who are impacted by trauma, the Tales can be helpful to anyone of any age who is contending with the effects of trauma.
