The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to secure funding for a dance/movement therapy program for family survivors of domestic violence. The program will be hosted by the Women Shelter of Long Beach, an agency that shelters family survivors of domestic violence exclusively and is committed to breaking the cycle of domestic violence. The Rudolph J. and Daphne A. Munzer Foundation was selected as the potential funder.
The program aims to decrease trauma symptoms and increase self-esteem among family survivors through dance/movement therapy groups in both English and Spanish. The program will be evaluated through the use of reliable and valid scales using a pre-test/post-test design. If funded, this program would aid many family survivors to generate catharsis, reduce immobility, and improve well-being. They will experience an innovative intervention, which has been shown to promote healing through the magic of dance and movement.
