Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to create a mindfulness program for female survivors of sexual violence. The program will be hosted by the Long Beach Trauma Recovery Center, an agency which treats trauma survivors exclusively and is committed to the use of evidence-based interventions. The Ahmanson Foundation was selected as the potential funder.

The mindfulness program will aim to decrease trauma symptoms, improve coping skills, and increase mindfulness in survivors through mindfulness-based stress reduction courses in both English and Spanish. The program will be evaluated through the use of reliable and valid scales using a pre-test/post-test design. If funded, this program would give up to 200 survivors an opportunity to learn a practice that has been proven to improve quality of life and promote healing.
