Abstract (Summary)

Low levels of self-esteem have been supported by research as a predisposing factor to a number of negative outcomes. Female youth approaching adolescence have been supported as demonstrating the greatest risk for low levels of self-esteem. Low levels of self-esteem in adolescent females as indicated by previous research often manifests itself in devastating physical, mental, and social health issues such as depression, dating violence, substance use, as well as others. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to potentially seek funds for a psychoeducation group focusing on the prevention of low levels of self-esteem. The groups are focused on identifying risk factors and engaging protective ones. The grant writer selected The Ueberroth Family Foundation as a potential funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
