Study examines the value of sexual assault helplines
Researchers at Florida Atlantic University have conducted a study
concerning the use and effectiveness of sexual assault helplines. The
results of the study identify the important need for training in
immediate and long-term effects of sexual assault.
According to the study, In the US alone there are more than 1,000
crisis hotline links yet, despite their widespread use, much remains
unknown about their usefulness.
