Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An online peer support program for cyberbullying: A grant writing project
by Quimpo, Kathy, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 62; 1591613
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to identify the need and write a grant to fund an online peer support program for adolescents who experience cyberbullying. The sponsoring agency for the grant proposal was the The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach. If funded, the agency would be able to enhance its services by hiring two additional social workers, one LCSW and one MSW. These social workers will oversee and train youth ages 14–18 to become experts in cyberbullying and intervention/prevention techniques. Adolescents in Long Beach will have access to real-time interactions with an online peer support team to have safe and confidential discussions about cyberbullying. The actual submission of this grant to The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation was not required to successfully complete this project.
