by Baltazar, Miriam, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 71; 1584932
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant project was to develop and fund a prenatal preventative program for pregnant mothers, first time parents or caregivers of newborn infants in the Los Angeles County area. The project will focus on providing primary prevention education through the implementation of Nurturing Program for Prenatal Families. The goal of this prenatal program is to help future, new parents and caregivers develop and enhance their strengths and skills relating to parenting instruction in order to reduce and prevent incidents of child abuse. Additionally, the program will administer public awareness surrounding preventative education. An extensive literature review was conducted on the effects of child abuse and interventions which have demonstrated to be helpful with this population. Early intervention programs have been known to have positive effects in diminishing child abuse recidivism. The selected funding source was Doris Duke Foundation. The actual funding and submission of this grant proposal were not required for the successful completion of the project.
