The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a program that would provide therapeutic program for Latinas who have experience spousal rape in Los Angeles County. This pilot program, entitled "Esperanza," is proposed in order to obtain funding for a specialized short-term therapeutic intervention program for Latina survivors of spousal rape. This type of intervention can help Latinas to develop a safety plan and become better educated regarding survival resources and options and to promote their personal and emotional development. Utilizing brief therapy with these survivors will focus on establishing safety, empowerment, and healing to the Latina survivor of spousal rape. Pre-test and post-test measures will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. A program such as Esperanza is needed in the Latino community to promote positive outreach and resources for a population that has been underserved with regard to this problem due to the cultural stigma associated with spousal rape.
