The purpose of this project was to design a training program for clinicians (medical doctors, nurses and licensed clinical social workers) working in urban clinics. The aim of the program is to provide knowledge of effective screening and treatment protocols for the detection of maternal depression in low-income Latina women. Additionally, the purpose of the proposed program is to teach clinicians how to screen for depression using standardized, empirically validated assessments suited for this population as well as to educate clinicians on culturally competent treatment options. Implications for social work practice in health care consist of the creation of psychosocial interventions which address the prevention, treatment, and social implications of maternal depression among vulnerable populations of woman and their families The Center for Latino Community Health at California State University Long Beach is the agency selected to sponsor this program. After an extensive review of funding available for this training program, a grant from the National Institutes of Health was selected based on their support of conferences and scientific meetings which support the dissemination of information that benefits public health.
