Have you ever been in a club or restaurant relaxing while enjoying that third or fourth cocktail and begin to wonder if you will be legally able to drive? LEGALLY, is the key word here. You may feel fine, and in reality, be able to operate a motor vehicle well enough to make the trip home without incident. However, in the eyes of the law, you may, in fact, be guilty of driving under the influence, commonly referred to as DUI. Other terms associated with this event are, operating under the influence, driving while intoxicated or just good old drunk driving.
In all states in the U.S., a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher is a DUI offense (to find out more information the laws and consequences of DUI visit www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/dui.html). These standards will vary from country to country. In some areas, a higher reading, such as .12 is considered an aggravated condition and will turn what is in most cases a misdameanor, into a felony carrying much stiffer penalties. It matters not that you are in complete control of the vehicle. Read the rest of this entry

Sadly, domestic violence is a reality in the modern world. Thankfully, the social attitude toward spousal abuse and other forms of domestic violence has gone from openly accepting in the early decades of the 20th century to almost universally un-accepting in the modern era. Even so, instances of domestic violence continue to occur in cities all over the nation involving people of all economic and ethnic backgrounds. If you are a victim of domestic violence, here are two options that you should immediately consider.
Domestic violence prevention is the most effective way of avoiding becoming a victim. (visit www.fahcsia.gov.au/sa/women/progserv/violence/vawag/Pages/default.aspx to find out where you can get help if you are a victim of domestic violence)Trained professionals are waiting to help you through the important transition from being scared and abused to be comfortable and safe. The most obvious way to prevent something from occurring is to remove yourself from the environment in which it occurs. Prevention is about more than just knowing how to defend yourself during confrontations, it is also about knowing how to take preemptive steps toward eliminating the occurrence of confrontations altogether.
Domestic violence counselling is another form of treatment that is directly aimed at getting a person away from possible sources of abuse. Read the rest of this entry
Gay Pride Bands are one type of wristband that you can wear to show your true self. This type of band has the six colors of the pride rainbow that have long been associated with the LGBT community — red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple with the word “Pride” clearly ingrained in the bracelet. When you wear a Gay Pride Band you are showing that you respect and understand today’s LGBT lifestyle and that you are happy to be a part of a world where people are accepted for who they are and not for what they are. You don’t have to live a lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans-gender life to have gay pride, everyone who is welcoming of the lifestyle can wear the bands to show their support.

Our main goal is to share with the world the profound and amazing discoveries of Paul Rosenfels. As a volunteer organization with no outside funding, we’ve always had to pay our own way since 1973, month after month. That’s why we ask members to donate $5 per month, and why we charge a nominal fee for the printed editions of the Center’s publications. But we have no financial motivation other than to pay the rent. So as long as that’s taken care of we will make Paul’s writings available here on the Internet at no charge.
As wonderful as the Internet is, a major problem for a site such as ours is letting people know we’re here. That’s going to take time, and we could use some volunteer help and expert suggestions as to how to proceed. So far we have applied to 20 or 30 of the major search engines for inclusion in their indexes. We have also asked major organizations in the social science and mental health professions to mention us if they have a page on Internet resources.
If you would like to help us in this effort — for instance, if you know of some educational institution that might like to sponsor our site, or you want to beta test some new features for us, or if you just have some good ideas on how we should proceed — please give us a holler. Thanks. Read the rest of this entry
I’m not the only person who thinks highly of Paul. Here are some of the things that his friends and students have had to say about the man. Clicking on each name will take you to a complete interview from which the quote was taken. (These interviews were originally published in my 1990 book, . In addition to being his friend, Edith Nash and Walter Ross are Paul’s sister and brother.) Read the rest of this entry
Although the discussion groups are our most popular activity, counseling has always been the most important service the Center offers. Our fees are minimal and always donated to the Center. We call it “peer” counseling not because all opinions are created equal but rather to emphasize that the value of an idea is independent of who’s expressing it and that we’re not going to pull rank on you.
Recently, for a new brochure we’re preparing, a few of our counselors typed up brief statements about how they approach counseling. Here’s what Bob Fink, who runs our Psychology Discussion Group, wrote: Read the rest of this entry

Paul was a rising star at the University of Chicago in the 1940′s, but once he dropped out of the academic system they ignored him for the rest of his life. In 1973 he and I opened the Ninth Street Center, an all-volunteer organization devoted to helping unconventional people live creatively in a sometimes oppressive world. People in need of truth are usually happy to express deep gratitude when they find it, and so this work has been gratifying. Unfortunately for them, the number of university scholars who have sense the importance of his work has remained rather small. Read the rest of this entry

The Ninth Street Center was founded in 1973 when Paul and I decided we were ready to teach the ideas that he had developed to more people than we could reach through our private counseling practices. With the help of about a dozen of our students, I opened a basement space on 9th Street between First and Second Avenues, in the heart of New York’s East Village. Soon we were running discussion groups, doing peer counseling, and having the time of our lives The following links will bring up various articles written back then so you can see what others thought of the excitement and enthusiasm that went into this project. For a current look back at what was going on 25 years ago, read the excerpt from Bill Boushka’s new book, Do Ask, Do Tell.
