Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Preventing child maltreatment among children with non-resident fathers: A grant proposal
by Gamez, Tania Elizabeth, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 70; 1517627
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant, locate a funding source and develop a program focusing on improving father involvement and to strengthen co-parenting skills among families with a non-resident father meeting the programs' criteria.

Children and their development has been an area of interest to researchers for many decades. Most research concludes that to ensure or to provide a child with the most opportunities to fare their best, a child should feel secure. A child should have the emotional support to cope with daily stressors, which at times can be difficult to achieve, given the increase in single-parent households solely headed by females.

After reviewing the literature and their mutual interest in children and families, the host agency, Families Uniting Families, as well as the funder, Carrie Estelle Doheny, were chosen. Submission for this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
