Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

ADHD psychoeducation for foster families: A grant proposal project
by Trinidad, Bernadette, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 50; 1486688
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a psychoeducation program for foster families with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The goal of this program is to increase the families' coping skills, educate the family on the nature of the disorder and ultimately decrease the number of unstable placements. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the problem and provided information about evidence-based ADHD psychoeducation program. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and an online grant database,, resulted in the selection of The Hearst Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A grant was then written to support a psychoeducation program at Families For Children in Inglewood, California.
