The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund a program that will address the losses parents must cope with as a result of having an adult child with mental illness. These parents may experience chronic sorrow and feelings of ambiguous loss; however, while statistics show that mental illness is addressed directly, the parents of those afflicted remain the underserved and underrepresented population that could benefit from professional intervention. Teaching professionals the techniques of meaning-making therapy can give parents coping skills for the ongoing and continuous losses they often endure. With funding from the S. Mark Taper Foundation, professionals will increase their knowledge about this form of grief work and demonstrate competence in utilizing the techniques in a workshop setting. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
