Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Psychology and Community Collaboration: Hope-Focused Marriage Enrichment Leader's Manual for Brazilian Community
by Hatcher, Raquel B. O., Psy.D., Regent University, 2013, 141; 3577319
Abstract (Summary)

Although Hope-Focused Couple Approach (HFCA) has been extensively researched in the United States, and demonstrated efficacy as an empirical supported couple enrichment intervention (Jakubowski, Milne, Brunner, & Miller, 2004), there are not enough studies with different populations. This project attempts to implement the HFCA with Brazilian Christian couples in collaboration with local churches in Brazil. In order to accomplish this goal, the author developed a hope-focused couples workshop leader's manual that is sensitive to the Brazilian cultural and social context.
