by Tucker, Tanisha, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 70; 1527758
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a psychoeducational support group for adoptive parents who were considering adoption dissolution. The target population was parents who adopted their children through the Los Angeles County public child welfare system. When families decide to sever their legal adoptive relationship with a child, the child re-enters foster care. This would have serious negative consequences for child's well-being. This project included the completion of a grant application to the Mazda Foundation to fund this program at Olive Crest, a social service providing agency within Los Angeles County. The actual submission of this grant was not required for the completion of this project.
