The purpose of this project was to write a grant and identify potential funding sources to develop a stress management program for mental health professionals working with children and families at the Specialized Foster Care Program with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. A search for potential funders was undertaken through grant databases in the selection of the UniHealth Foundation. A comprehensive literature review was conducted to identify appropriate interventions to reduce stress. The short-term (8-week) program will teach stress management skills to address and reduce workplace stressors. It will aim to decrease the impact of burnout, secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue among mental health professionals. In decreasing stress, it is the goal that mental health professionals will have an overall optimal and healthy well-being and become resilient to risks that they encounter in their workplace. A pre-and post-course measure on coping skills and stress will be conducted. The Stamm (2009) Professional Quality of Life: Compassion Satisfaction and Fatigue Version 5 (ProQOL) will be used to evaluate stress.
