The Hamburg Experience
Directors/representatives of 66 programs, 32 of which were outside the United States, answered the protocol questions found in Appendix II or sent information to the authors to be used in the descriptions provided in this volume. Those individuals either provided information about or discussed their centers’ missions, philosophies, theory bases, and visions of an ideal center and whether the centers worked with sexual abuse survivors, refugees, asylum seekers, disaster victims, battered women, or other survivor groups. Some centers demonstrated that they were “on the way” to meeting what the directors/representatives considered to be “ideal.” Others struggled to find funding, to provide minimal services under difficult (if not horrible) conditions of poverty, lack of safety, and personal risk, and “just” to survive.
