Annotation: This article describes the Danish Center for Rape Victims (CRV) in Denmark, a multidisciplinary public model for treating victims of rape and sexual assault.
Abstract: Most centers for rape and sexual assault victims today build on the original principles proposed in Boston by Burgess and Holmstrom in the 1970s (Burgess, 2006; Burgess & Holmstrom, 1973). In line with technological advances, scientific developments, and societal changes, the standards of and the framework behind these centers must be assessed and developed further to accommodate the growing need for rape trauma services in Europe and worldwide. This article describes the experiences of a public Danish center for rape victims and proposes a management model for current and future rape victim centers. References (Published Abstract)
