by Wright, Megan, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 62; 10099859
Abstract (Summary)

New mothers who have substance use dependency often are unable to develop a secure attachment bond with their infants which can cause developmental problems for the growing child. The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, identify a potential funder, and write a grant to implement the Minding the Baby reflective functioning program for mothers and their infants at A New Start for Moms, an agency located in Oxnard, California. The proposed program will utilize both public health nurses and a social work clinician to provide a 36-week program for new mothers who are struggling with substance use disorders with the tools and support needed in order to create a healthy attachment with their infant using the principles of reflective functioning. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
