Grandmothers raising grandchildren may experience stress that adversely affects their health and, thus, they may benefit from interventions to promote resourcefulness. Before conducting definitive tests about the effectiveness of resourcefulness training (RT), it is essential to determine the need for the training. This study of 126 grandmothers examined baseline resourcefulness, attrition rates from the resourcefulness training, and perceived need for RT. Baseline resourcefulness scores indicated that 72% of the grandmothers had more than a moderate need for RT. Reasons for attrition were unrelated to perceived need. After receiving RT, 88% perceived that they needed it. The results support testing RT effectiveness as the next step.
