Evaluating Services for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

This book provides an accessible overview of the process and problems in the evaluation of programs serving abused women. The authors cover general issues in evaluation as well as the process of collaborating with both funding agencies and community-based agencies. They place evaluation within a political and historical context that informs service providers of the broader issues raised by evaluation. This book is unique in its inclusion of the role of evaluation in the continued development of the anti-rape and battered women's movement in the United States. It also includes measurement tools for the most commonly offered services that have been developed and field tested with 87 domestic violence and sexual assault agencies.
