Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A Grant Proposal for Mindfulness-Based Self-Care Training for Child Welfare Workers
by Zhang, Yi, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 60; 10263621
Abstract (Summary)

The core of this proposed grant is implementing a mindfulness-based self-care training program for child welfare professionals working for Families Uniting Families, a non-profit foster care agency located in Long Beach, California. Through practicing mindfulness-based self-care, the child welfare workers at FUF will gain mindfulness skills to prevent and combat compassion fatigue.

The grant writer reviewed literature on compassion fatigue and mindfulness-based interventions in the helping profession. The grant writer made a case for the effectiveness of a mindfulness-based curriculum to reduce and prevent compassion fatigue for child welfare workers. After searching for potential funding sources, the grant writer located the Weigngart Foundation as the most potent funder.

The actual submission of the grant proposal is not a requirement for the completion of this thesis.
