We have all experienced trauma, though differing in types and levels, we’ve all been there in some way. Prayer, books, counseling, podcasts, and accountability are all great tools and methods for processing and dealing with trauma in a healthy way. But have you ever considered that animated movies might be a way to offer hope and healing as we process emotional trauma?

Today on our list we have a little bit of a different approach to processing emotional trauma. We can’t promise all of these films will help everyone in the same way but we can promise that these are all fun, cute, and entertaining animated films which have great messages woven throughout the stories.

In the heaviness of it all, an animated movie could be just the ticket to a more lighthearted approach to processing some of the emotions tied into trauma.
