A Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Saito Pico-Union Charter School: A Grant Proposal Project
by Khan, Seema, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 64; 10751798
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the proposed project was to establish the need for trauma-focused school-based program for at-risk urban youth, to identify a well-matched funding source, and to write a grant with the likelihood of being awarded funding. It is well established that youth who have experienced traumatic life events are more likely to suffer from mental and physical health problems. Experiencing childhood trauma puts youth at risk of negative life outcomes, such as self-harm behavior, delinquency and perpetration of violence, low educational attainment, unemployment, poverty, and dependence on public assistance. To address this social problem, the proposed treatment program is a school-based, trauma-focused, cognitive therapy-based intervention with proven success rates.

The Ralph Parsons Foundation was identified as the most suitable funding source for this project because the goals of the project align with the foundation’s areas of focus for at-risk youth.

Along with identifying the needs of underprivileged groups and advocating for services to meet those needs, strong grant writing skills allow social workers to attain the funds necessary to support these services. The actual submission for funding of this grant proposal was not a requirement for the fulfillment of this thesis.
