Young adults leave their homes or are forced to leave their homes for a variety of reasons. While on the streets youth become vulnerable to many other traumatic experiences that compound the trauma already experienced before leaving home. Given the lack of services that address trauma in homeless youth, the purpose of this thesis was to develop a grant proposal for the design and implementation of a psychoeducation support group targeting homeless youth at the Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Academy, in Long Beach, California. The goal of the psychoeducation support group is to increase awareness about the effects of trauma and trauma related events that may cause PTSD in homeless adolescents. As well as teach group members skills to create their social support and advocate for themselves. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
