Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Support group program for transnational parents: A grant proposal
by Montes, Sara, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 65; 1590917
Abstract (Summary)

Transnational parents encounter mental health problems and emotional difficulties when they separate from their children to migrate to the United States. The purpose of this project was to locate a funding source and write a grant to develop a program for transnational parents at Maternal and Child Health Access, in Los Angeles, California. The goal of this program was to decrease depressive symptomology and other mental health problems among Latino transnational parents; as well as to address parent-child separation stressors. The proposed program was designed to be culturally competent to meet the needs of Latino immigrant parents through three support groups that utilize supportive, educational, and cognitive behavior therapy components. The Langeloth Foundation was identified as a potential funder for this proposed program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
