Abstract (Summary)

Child welfare workers (CWWs) experience high levels of stress related to the nature of their job that, if left unaddressed, can lead to burnout. Often stress and burnout are not addressed in the child welfare field. The purpose of this project was to create a mindfulness–based training program to help address and decrease stress and burnout for CWWs in Orange County, California, who work in Children and Family Services. The goal for this program is to educate CWWs and give them skills and abilities to use long term to recognize and reduce stress levels and burnout. The potential funding source for this grant is the Annenberg Foundation, whose purpose is to serve local communities by improving human health and wellness. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this thesis.
