Abstract (Summary)

This thesis project was written to seek funding for mental health care for human trafficking survivors who are served by the Salvation Army's Anti-Trafficking Services Program. Mental health care is an essential part of victims' services in order to assist the survivors to gain self-sufficiency and to integrate into society. This project proposes two evidenced-based treatments: art therapy and mindfulness therapy. Both art therapy and mindfulness therapy strengthen survivors' resiliency and sense of coherence as well as transform posttraumatic stress to posttraumatic growth. This grant proposal located a potential funding source which is the Sisters of St. Joseph's Health Care Foundation. The actual submission of this grant proposal to the funding agency is not a requirement set by the MSW program
