by De Casas, Rosalina, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 79; 10131640
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to design a comprehensive school-based program to support children experiencing symptoms related to trauma exposure, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund the program for Edmondson Elementary School. The proposed intervention, based on best practices, takes a two-pronged approach to reduce the short and long-term negative consequences resulting from unresolved childhood trauma. First, it offers school staff and parents training to increase school-wide awareness of childhood trauma and how symptoms display in children. Secondly, it offers school-based, small group services to 80 students in grades 3 – 5 identified as having trauma-related symptoms. Parents and teachers of students receiving services will be offered added training and support during the intervention period. Implications for social work practice are discussed. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant proposal was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
