Rape Crisis Series: Professor studies effectiveness of rape crisis centers in Texas

Part 1 of 2: Social work professor Rachel Voth-Schrag contributed to a study looking into the effectiveness of rape crisis centers in Texas. She found that their main priorities were addressing mental health challenges that accompany trauma and challenges with functioning after a traumatic event. There’s no rape crisis center at UTA, however the university does offer assistance through their Crime Victim Services unit under the UTA Police Department. VCS offers victims of any violent crime help getting the services they need to recover, and they can do so without filing a formal police report.
