Crisis Intervention

Crisis intervention helps to reduce a victim’s specific fears and anxieties following a sexual assault or other violent crime. 

Crisis issues may occur immediately after an attack, when the victim discloses the assault or  even after another event triggers a reaction.
Intervention begins with the initial period of trauma for the victim and his or her significant others. 

The crisis intervention services we offer include:

  • Contact with an agency counselor, either in person or over the phone
  • Accompaniment to the police interviews or
  • Accompaniment to medical treatment.
  • Assessment of victims’ emotional needs
  • Information about police and medical procedures
  • Referrals for additional services.
