Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for early mental health services for children 0 to 5 years old exposed to interpersonal violence. An extensive literature review was conducted to understand the impact of interpersonal violence on young children, as well as evidence-based therapies for this population.

The goals of the proposed program are to strengthen the parent-child bond and thus minimize the child’s emotional, psychological, and behavioral issues caused by interpersonal violence. Parent-child therapy would be provided in the home so that the child is in a familiar environment and the parent can witness positive parenting skills, as taught by the therapist in a real world scenario.

The John and Lisa Pritzker family fund was chosen to support the program. The actual submission of the grant was not a requirement of the thesis project.
