Welcome to the Power Based Personal Violence Prevention homepage of FSU's Center for Health Advocacy and Wellness. We recognize the impact and prevalence of power based personal violence including sexual violence/misconduct, interpersonal violence, domestic/relationship violence, stalking and sexual harassment. Power based personal violence can be committed by friends, partners, acquaintances, or strangers.

Power based personal violence is rooted in the assertion of power, control and/or intimidation with the intent to harm another. The Center for Health Advocacy and Wellness focuses on relationship violence, sexual assault/misconduct, stalking, and sexual harassment as forms of power based personal violence. We believe that prevention is about action, education, and the continuum of care for our students, faculty, and staff.
