Rape Crisis Counseling.
Hicks, Lou E.
Rape crisis counseling at the New Orleans Y.W.C.A. is provided on a 24 hour basis by a staff of two professionals and 30 volunteers who counsel persons calling the rape crisis line. The caller's confidentiality is strictly maintained. In approximately 36% of the calls which involve crimes not reported to the police, callers are encouraged but never pressured to report the crime. Volunteer training procedures are briefly described, as are linkages with other agencies. (Author)
