& Sexual Assault Teen
Information about date rape drugs
is here. This archived page is the assignment from my Domestic
Violence and Sexual Assault class that served as the foundation
for building the page.
For many, a frightening aspect of abusive relationships
is the young age at which they start occurring. An important response is thus
trying to educate young people about what constitutes a healthy relationship and
how to deal with relationships that are turning abusive. As Levy's book points

teens, parents or teachers; it can include information about identifying abuse,
interventions or educational programs. The websites you suggest will be turned

Searching the Internet
The internet now has well over 2 billion
pages and there are several hundred search engines to help people find information. My
personal preference, based on my own use and looking at my webmaster log for this
page, is Google. They have the most pages indexed and one of the better ways of
matching keywords. The boxes below provide direct access; the safe search box
filters out adult content and can be helpful for searches about sexual assault,
women in prison, etc.
You do not have to use these if you
prefer another search engine. For more information about search engines, how
they work, tips for finding what you want on the internet, and various ratings
