Daniel Carter, Campus Security Consultant In recent years, studies have confirmed that sexual victimization data from the federal Clery Act significantly understates the true scope of the challenge faced by institutions of higher education. Campus climate surveys have emerged as a leading way to more accurately capture information about sexual violence, with numerous institutions, higher education associations, and the federal government, including bi-partisan proposals in Congress, advancing work in this field.
This presentation will trace the history of campus climate surveys, discuss how they differ from traditional crime reporting, explore the decision making process for administering a survey at the campus level, and explain how to use the data collected to develop institution specific solutions for tackling sexual violence.

She will offer an overlay of how adverse child experiences, emotional abandonment and blatant violence are the foundation of traumatic responses. She will summarize her presentation discussing goals and clinical considerations for differing members of the family unit 5: Addiction has been a divisive term, with different meanings applied depending on the perspective. Emerging evidence regarding how the brain learns and changes in the process, particularly as applied to natural rewards important in survival, now informs our understanding of addictive sexuality.
Much of the opposition to this concept is dismissive of a neuroscience model, arguing that sexual addiction is a relative concept related more to a moral rather than a biological and ethological perspective. This myopic view fails to address how current reward learning models are informed by neuroplasticity, synaptic modulation, and genetically mediated signaling cascades.
Pornography can be considered a "supranormal stimulus" and a visual pheromone in this context. Sexual addiction is as much about synaptic change as it is about behavioral descriptions and categorizations.
