Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Nurturing parents through group work: A grant proposal
by Pinkney, Carolyn, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 64; 1499199
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to secure funding for the Nurturing Parenting Through Group Work Program, a family-centered program providing at-risk parents and their children with an alternative to abusive and neglectful parenting practices. The program's long-term goal is to better the lives of at-risk parents and youth through reducing the rate of children being removed from their homes by social service agencies, recidivism of families who have had children removed from the home, juvenile delinquency, substance abuse, and the generational cycle of abuse.

The program workshops are designed with activities to promote positive parent-child interaction. Parents and children will attend separate groups, which meet concurrently to foster self-esteem and self-awareness, increase empathy, enhance communication, teach appropriate developmental expectation, and promote healthy physical and emotional development. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not a requirement for successful project completion.
