Abstract (Summary)

Children who experience trauma, grief, and loss face numerous barriers and are more vulnerable to risk factors of physical, emotional, social, and educational difficulties. A support program would provide services to help children and their families cope with these risk factors. The purpose of this project was to design a support program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to help fund the program, which would provide services to children and families in the city of Whittier, California, who are experiencing trauma and grief. The program consists of therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and support groups. Funds would be requested to implement this program to assist children and families in improving their quality of life.
