Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Rodriguez, George, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 71; 1528036
Abstract (Summary)

There will be a dramatic increase in the Latino older-adult population projected for the next few years. There is a marked prevalence of depression within the Latino older-adult community, yet there are few programs specifically targeting depression within the older Latino community. Therefore, the "Esperanza" depression support group was developed to help older Latino clients develop new coping strategies to help them better manage living with depression and cope with this condition. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal and identify a potential funder for a support group for Alma Family Services, in Pico Rivera, California, the host agency for the Esperanza support group program. The Archstone Foundation was selected as the most promising funding source for this project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
