Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a program, identify a funding source, and write a grant to fund a psychoeducational support group. A detailed literature review was conducted to analyze the background and prevalence of the problem as well as past solutions attempted to resolve the problem.

Substance-exposed infants continue to be taken from their mothers at birth and placed in the care of relative caregivers or foster care providers. This program seeks to help improve the level of awareness of caregivers about the potential challenges and needs of substance-exposed infants. The goal of the proposed program is to create a psychoeducational support group for the purpose of increasing the knowledge of and support for caregivers of substance-exposed infants. The program will target cities in the Service Planning Area (SPA) 6 of Los Angeles County.

Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
