Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Music therapy for residential children: A grant writing project
by Do, Lillian, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 63; 1493113
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to secure funding for a music therapy program at the Residential Treatment Center of Five Acres, The Boys' and Girls' Aid Society of Los Angeles County. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about effects of maltreatment and life in foster care and provided information on the effectiveness of music therapy in helping foster children with emotional and behavior issues and disabilities. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet resulted in the selection of the Hearst Foundation as the best funding source for the project. A grant was then written to support a music therapy program at the RTC Center of Five Acres in Los Angeles, California. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for successful completion of the project.
