The purpose of this project was to design school-based, trauma-focused psychoeducational groups for mixed-status students and families utilizing the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Schools (CBITS) program, identify potential funding sources and to complete grant application requirements to fund an inclusive program at E. Neal Roberts Elementary School in San Bernardino, California. The presence of the target population of mixed- status students and families is significant within the San Bernardino community. The availability of services for mixed-status families that address socio-emotional stressors associated with immigration is limited. Therefore, an increased need for such support services are critical, particularly during the present political climate. A school-based program was seen a safe, accessible and effective way to deliver information and support for both mixed-status students and their families.
The components of the proposed trauma-focused groups include social problem skills, cognitive restructuring, psychoeducation, parent education and legal policy immigration education. Through a review of the literature, the needs and challenges of mixed-status families were explored to design a comprehensive proposal.
The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of the project.
