by Argueta, Edith, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 61; 1522555
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds for an educational program for social work professionals who work with the Department of Children and Family Services or collateral agencies throughout the Los Angeles, California area in order to increase awareness of the prevalence of child sexual abuse and culturally-relevant interventions for Latino families. Nearly 60% of the reported child sexual abuse (CSA) cases in Los Angeles County are of Latino origin, making it important for child welfare workers to develop cultural awareness and competence when working with these families. The goal of the program will be to increase worker's awareness about CSA and to further their knowledge on best practice interventions in working with victims and their Latino families. The potential funding source for the program was identified as the Stuart Foundation as they fund programs related to child welfare agencies. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant proposal were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
