Abstract

The purpose of this project was to provide tools to the caretakers of the Rita Zniber Foundation to help them address the emotional needs of abandoned children. We collected information through weekly observation activities with children, focus groups with caretakers, and interviews with the organization’s administration. Two deliverables were provided to the organization: an educational book detailing emotional problems abandoned children face while growing up, and a group therapy guide designed to help facilitate meaningful conversation to address these issues.
