Natasha Helfer Parker interviews a powerhouse panel: Donna Kelly, a Salt Lake City based prosecutor who focuses on sexual assault and domestic violence cases; Kristine Haglund, previous editor for LDS magazine Dialogue and Colleen Payne Dietz, a sexual assault survivor. They discuss the situation that started spring of 2016 when Madi Barney filed a federal complaint against BYU-Provo in regards to how sexual assault cases are handled in regards to Title IV protocol with the Honor Code Department becoming involved with often academic and spiritual consequences doled out to victims who report assault. As a result, BYU did an internal study/investigation and came forward with recommendations that would be implemented immediately. Since then, BYU has made some recent decisions with staff that BYU assault survivors are upset about and claim do not follow the recommendations put forth. A group of them wrote a letter to the BYU president addressing their concerns, which was published in the Salt Lake Tribune. This is an incredibly important topic to keep in the forefront of discussions happening within our LDS culture.

A candid discussion with sex and marriage therapists Natasha Helfer-Parker and Julie de Azevedo-Hanks about Wendy Watson Nelson’s speech at the January 2017 Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults. Host is Gina Colvin and this is a co-production with A Thoughtful Faith.

Nelson’s address garnered some criticism for the unhealthy, purity-centred and confusing expectations that she constructed around sex.  She argued that Four Truths (below) should govern and inform marital sex. Helfer-Parker and de Azevedo-Hanks provide a frank critique of this advice.
