Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a local host agency, locate a potential funding source and write a grant to obtain funding for a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group. This DBT project will address the needs of the Transitional Age Youth (TAY) population in Orange County, California. A literature review was conducted to examine the best practices of working with the TAY population, and to examine history, policies, etc. related to DBT. This DBT TAY program will prepare/support TAYs in reducing incidents of self-harm and psychiatric hospitalizations as well as equip them with the skills to find a meaningful role in their community, successfully communicate and interact with friends and family and work toward their stated goals. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
