Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Equine therapy with children residing in group home care: A grant proposal project
by Reynolds, Nancy Diane, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 47; 1472368
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a proposal for an equine therapy program for children and adolescents who have been severely maltreated and currently reside in residential treatment facilities. The proposed program aims to increase the child's self-esteem and reduce the child's negative behaviors by increasing life skills and identification of emotions to help cope with maltreatment in their past. The equine therapy program will be conducted through Hillview Acres Children's Home in Chino, California for children who suffer from severe maltreatment. A search for a potential funding source was conducted and the Weingart Foundation was chosen. A grant was then written to support an equine therapy program for the children residing at Hillview Acres Children's Home.
