by Boyles, Ashley Sukiko, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 59; 1523098
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a program to provide individual Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) to female veterans diagnosed with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at the Long Beach Veterans Administration Medical Center (LBVAMC) in Long Beach, California. An extensive review of the literature included a review of current treatment modalities endorsed and utilized by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In this literature review, IPT was identified as a promising treatment modality with positive outcomes in smaller sample sizes, and among different populations diagnosed with PTSD. The grant writer then designed a treatment program and wrote a grant to support a program to deliver IPT to female veterans diagnosed with PTSD. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
