Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence (IPV), domestic abuse or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. For more information on the power dynamics in intimate partner violence, please visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
Violence does not just occur in relationships between adults. Youth experience this as well. Sex & Physical Intimate Partner Violence in Youth.
Betty is the guru among sexual health practitioners. Her work is geared toward healing trauma and helping people have better sex. She has spent the past 12 years developing one of the most important educational models for sexual health of the last 300 years. She calls it The Wheel of Consent. She made several videos as gifts to anyone who wants to use them. “The videos are fine, the ideas are fine – but it’s the experience of it that will change you,” she says. “…it’s the experience that matters – when your hands get it, you get it.”
Thank you, Betty!

Dispute Resolution Centers (DRCs) help people create solutions to resolve their disagreements. They offer a voluntary, confidential, informal and non-adversarial alternative to the legal system. DRCs do not offer counseling or therapy, and they do not give legal advice. Each DRC is a private, nonprofit organization or a service of local government.
Most DRCs offer mediation as their primary conflict resolution service. In mediation, a trained, neutral person helps people discuss and resolve problems, or at least narrow and clarify issues. The process encourages joint problem-solving in which people gain an understanding of each other’s point of view. Mediation provides a safe environment to talk through issues and feelings and to negotiate a mutually satisfactory solution. The mediator is a professionally trained community member whose role is to assist the parties in communicating and understanding their issues and interests. The mediator is not a decision-maker.
Any civil, nonviolent dispute is a candidate for mediation. For mediation to be successful, every participant must be willing to enter into good faith negotiations. Typical cases handled by DRCs involve:– Landlords and tenants,
– Consumers and merchants,
– Citizens and agencies,
– Employees and employers,
– Families, and
– Divorcing and divorced couples.
