The purpose of this thesis was to obtain a grant to develop a Somatic Therapy Program for at-risk Jewish female adolescents attending Camp Extreme for Girls, sponsored by Project Extreme of New York. This population has unique needs, is underserved in residential style programs, and has been found to respond positively with measurable changes. The goal of the Somatic Therapy Program was to reduce the effects of traumatic experiences through lowering trauma induced anxiety, enhancing emotional health, and supporting enduring personal growth.
The Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Foundation was recognized as a suitable funding agency as this foundation supports youth development and promotes strategies that enhance positive results. The grant writer developed the Somatic Therapy Program in order to provide at-risk Jewish female teens quality, long lasting emotional changes within a therapeutic setting. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
