Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Providing services to partners of combat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder: A grant proposal
by Palacios, Allison, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 63; 1524148
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to seek funding for an online support group for partners of combat veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The intention of this program will be to provide a safe place for partners of veterans to express concerns, raise questions and obtain support from a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and peers. Partners of veterans would receive psycho-education regarding PTSD, symptoms, and effects of symptoms on intimate relationships and family functioning. Coping and effective communication will also be available to members of the groups in order to promote prevention or reduction of caregiver burden associated with caring for an individual with a mental illness. The program will be implemented at the Veteran Affairs Hospital in Long Beach, California. The potential funding source selected was the VA Office of Health Services and Research Development Service (HSR&D). Submitting this proposal for funding was not required for completion of the project.
