"This work is very important. Ten years ago when I was being trained by the Safe & Together staff as a case worker, I knew I needed to change things. If we don't spread the word and train in this Model we are not serving families as we should. It is an honor to be a part of this work. What we learn not only in our own state, the work is the same, the concerns are the same, the Model fits. The practice of the Model, the fidelity of the Model - is the same no matter what agency we work with. The Model will catch you every time.” - #STOH panelist: Casey Burke, Lynn Rodriguez, Christine Morris and Lisa Fleischer

Episode 1: Coercive Control and Consent

“When you have somebody who has control over the directionality of your world, you try to make them happy, and that is just a survival tactic. So, keeping the perpetrator happy in that situation is not a sign of consent, it’s a sign of self-protection. When you bring it into the context of ‘this person threatened me and they have this power over me…’ they [the perpetrator] have now tipped the balance of consent completely; that all the balance of power is in their hands.” -Ruth, season 1, episode 1, Partnered with a Survivor: #CoerciveControl and Consent
