Grandparents as parents are a fast growing population, as the need for custodial grandparents increases so does the need for culturally competent interventions that address their needs and that of their grandchildren. This psycho-educational curriculum focuses on Latino grandparent caregivers; it encompasses the stressors commonly faced by custodial grandparents while addressing the cultural values and beliefs of this population. The cultural values addressed in this curriculum include: Respeto, Personalismo, and Familismo, the curriculum is built upon these values, and they are carried throughout each session.
The foundation for this thesis curriculum includes cultural values, as well as knowledge of loss and grief theory and elements of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Themes that will be addressed in this curriculum include: loss, grief, mental health through psycho-education, coping skills, behavioral and emotional challenges in children and obtaining available community resources.
