Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify a potential funding source, and complete the grant process to obtain funding for the program. Children who are affected by traumatic life events face numerous barriers and are more vulnerable to risk factors of physical, emotional, social, and educational difficulties. This program is designed to train school staff and implement trauma-related interventions in school settings, to create a more conducive learning environment for traumatized children. This grant proposal includes information on how trauma impacts children, its prevalence, and the necessity for early intervention. Social workers play an important role in helping victims get stabilized and develop skills to cope with their symptoms. The identified funding source for this project is the Stuart Foundation. If funded, this program would give children who are affected by trauma a greater opportunity at improving their quality of life. The actual funding and submission of this grant were not requirements for successful completion of this academic project.
