Nelson R H
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the work of a crisis centre’s telephone service. The Nashville Crisis Call Center is staffed by 65 volunteers and 10 “back-up” professionals. Data was collected from an analysis of the referral network for a one month period; the agency’s image in the community was also investigated. Scales of evaluation, potency, and activity, and a volunteer questionnaire were used.
