Power and Control Wheel

We invite teens and anyone in a position to lead a discussion with them -- teachers, service providers, mentors -- to use our Power & Control Wheel below. Each spoke contains examples and a video demonstrating one of the forms of abuse. Try asking yourself (or your group) what would be the best way to handle each of the situations portrayed, then check out our tips.
