Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Depression and anxiety crochet group for Latinas: A grant writing thesis
by Fernandez, Claudia, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 61; 1586855
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a program for Latina women living in Orange County, California with depression and anxiety. Latinas are at a high risk for depression and other mental health conditions due to domestic violence, gender role expectations, stigma, and limited access to mental health resources. The goal of this program is to reduce depression and anxiety rates among 150 Latinas. This program will provide culturally sensitive empirically supported groups in which crocheting is used as part of an intervention that includes the curriculum from A Window Between Worlds (2015), employing art as a healing tool for trauma. The groups will also include cognitive behavioral therapy and encourage the women to use journaling and mindfulness meditation. Standardized instruments will evaluate outcomes. Submission of the grant was not a requirement for this project.
