The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant application to provide a focused treatment for sexually abused adolescents. A literature review was performed to investigate the effects of child sexual abuse and evidence-based treatments that target the traumas and maladaptive behaviors that are a product of sexual abuse. As part of a therapeutic treatment resource within the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Santa Fe Springs, the proposed program should help adolescents with necessary techniques to overcome sexual abuse-related challenges. The chosen funding source is the National Institutes of Health. The program will entail a psychotherapy–support group approach for sexually abused adolescent females. The goal is to help clients reduce symptoms that negatively affect their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the completion of this project.
