Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A trauma informed therapeutic program for victims of domestic minor sex trafficking: A grant proposal
by Flores, Vanessa I., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 62; 1586156
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide domestic minor trafficking victims with specialized comprehensive therapeutic services. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best ways to restore functionality within this population. Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) is a chronic social issue that can lead to detrimental outcomes for youth in the United States. The chosen funding source is the Mark S. Taper Foundation whose funds are distributed to programs aimed at bettering communities and providing marginalized populations with resources. The proposed program's overarching goal is to promote a better quality of life for the DMST population in the city of Long Beach, California through skill building, empowerment, relationship building, and exposure to psycho-education that will increase options and lead to improved client outcomes. Program effectiveness will be measured through the distribution of evidence-based scales and client evaluations. If funded, this program will promote a better quality of life for an exploited population. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
