Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Support group for children who experienced domestic violence: A grant proposal
by Sandoval, Yolanda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 69; 1486371
Abstract (Summary)

In the United States, millions of children are exposed to domestic violence each year. Exposure to domestic violence can have a negative impact on children. These children may be more likely to exhibit externalizing behavior, such as aggression, disobedience, and conduct problems, and internalizing behavior, such as anxiety and depression. Children who have witnessed violence are in need of numerous psychosocial interventions in order to ameliorate the effects of exposure to domestic violence. These children can benefit by participating in a support group. The purpose of this project was to design a support group for children who have witnessed domestic violence, identify potential funding sources, and complete a grant proposal. The identified potential funding source for the proposed program was the Eisner Foundation.
