Abstract #289
Sesame Street Resilience Project, Little Children, Big Challenge: Incarceration
Presenter: Geraldine Oades-Sese Co - Presenters: Joyce Lee, Sri Harathi, Victoria Millie, Melanie Yu, Ashley Rodgers, Isrin Srisethnil  
Abstract:
The purpose of the Sesame Street Resilience Project was to determine the effectiveness of the multimedia home intervention toolkit, Little Children, Big Challenge: Incarceration (English and Spanish), in promoting resilience in young children ages 2 to 6. Parents were trained to implement a 4-week resilience-based intervention in their homes. The intervention group focused on enhancing children’s social-emotional resilience, while the active control group focused on building physical/mental resilience through healthy eating and exercise. Participants included 100 families from the Northeast and were from socially and culturally diverse backgrounds. Families were randomly assigned to an active control or intervention group. The project used standardized rating scales from parents to measure parent-child communication, home environment, children’s social skills, and emotional competence. The project data are currently being analyzed and therefore the poster will discuss the final results in more depth. The poster will also provide implications for parent-based interventions and their effects on at-risk populations.
