Conference 2017

Conference Overview

The NC State University Counseling Center is proud to partner with Chrysalis Network to bring the Solving the Campus Sexual Assault & Dating Violence Puzzle Conference to NC State.  Campuses nationally are continuing to work hard to meet and exceed federal requirements around sexual and dating violence prevention and response.  As the national lens on these issues has brought much needed advocacy, investigation, and prevention programs to campuses, it has also created compliance-driven campuses versus those focused on being proactive and doing what’s right. This year’s conference strives to re-commit us to this work, remind us that this work is vital for the health and success of our campus communities whether there are regulations in place or not, and provide participants with tangible strategies and effective approaches to campus advocacy, prevention, and investigations. Main themes will focus on the good and bad of social media, perpetrator sanctioning, what is required to engage men – for real, and the role of advocates in the current climate.

This conference is intended to create a thoughtful and intentional space for campuses and community agencies to showcase their programs, and work together to solve the challenging puzzle of responding to and preventing all forms of sexual and dating violence on college campuses.

The NC State Counseling Center offers individual, group, and couples therapy, psychiatric services, as well as academic and career counseling. We also provide outreach and consult with faculty, staff and students who are concerned about students in distress. We are here to support any and all students impacted by interpersonal violence. We can also help survivors, allies/supporters, and those accused of interpersonal violence get connected with other resources on and off campus. And, we are the one of the few places on campus not required by Title IX or the Clery Act to report ANY information regarding an incident of interpersonal violence. We’re open 8-5 M- F and always have a counselor on-call in case of emergencies.

Speak About It

Speak About It does what many people in the violence prevention field previously thought was impossible: it combines humor, healthy sexuality, and consent in a nuanced and entertaining way while treating the issue of sexual violence with respect and sensitivity,” says Cara Corschene from the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault about the show. Speak About It is a performance that focuses on consent, boundaries, alcohol, and healthy relationships, and is intended for high school or college audiences. Using a combination of humorous yet provocative skits, interactive dialogue, and powerful, true monologues, the show empowers and educates students to have a dialogue about sex and sexual violence and to create and sustain change on their campuses.
