Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this thesis and concomitant grant proposal was to address the individual needs of grieving Latina mothers who have recently lost a young child through the implementation of a bereavement support group at St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church, Hawaiian Gardens, California. Within the Latino culture, there are specific grieving practices such as religious rituals and symbols that help this population make sense of their grief and loss. This proposed bereavement support group will be conducted in Spanish and infused with the cultural and religious customs, beliefs, and practices of the Latino Community. The goal of this program is to improve coping skills and decrease social isolation among Latina mothers who have lost a child. The Sisters of St. Joseph Healthcare Foundation was selected as the potential funding source for this program. The implementation or submission of this grant proposal was not a requirement for completion of this project.
