Transcript of AS Presentation- Exec

Violence on a spectrum
Many people tend to place value judgments on the severity of different acts of violence.
However, we cannot state that one act causes another or that one crime is "worse" than another.
These problems can’t be defined too precisely or put into categories

Naming forms of violence in a straightforward way will help us recognize and acknowledge it.
Threats, insults, constant monitoring, humiliation, intimidation, isolation, silent treatment, or stalking.
Emotional Abuse
Intentional use of physical force with the intent to cause injury
Physical Abuse
Sexual Harassment
Form of Sex Discrimination
Unwelcome verbal, nonverbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature
Sexual Violence
Form of Sexual Harassment
Any physical sexual act perpetrated against an individual
without consent
Pattern of behavior
Someone repeatedly contacts you, follows you, sends you things, talks to you when you don’t want them to or threatens you.
Intimate Partner Abuse, Dating Violence, or Domestic Violence
Pattern of abuse used to exert
power and control
over a partner.
Can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic or psychological.
Sexual Assault
Form of Sexual Violence
An attempt,
coupled with the ability,
to commit a violent injury on the person of another because of that person’s gender or sex.
Form of Sexual Violence
Non-consensual sexual intercourse
May also involve the use of threat of force, violence, or immediate and unlawful bodily injury or threats.
Any sexual penetration, however slight, is sufficient to constitute rape.

for sexual contact means that an individual is a willing participant in the sexual act.

Unable to give consent
if incapacitated by the influence of drugs or alcohol

Now there is a difference between
regretted sex and sexual assault,
and it is important to distinguish the two...

Two people can consent to be sexually intimate and feel bad about it or regret it afterward. This is called
“regretted sex”.
It is
sexual assault because both individuals consented- but, one or both individuals feel guilty, uneasy, or unhappy about what happened afterward.
Reasons for having regretted sex are :
Sexual Inexperience
Poor communication skills and feelings of insecurity,
Sometimes people have sex when what they really want is affection, to feel close and loved
How should you react and what should you do?
The very first thing you should do is
the survivor.
The second thing you should do is

The third thing you should do is connect them with

Who are mandated reporters?
All University employees,
Licensed counselors
Sexual assault counselors and advocates,
Must report to the Title IX Coordinator all relevant details about any Sexual Violence incidents of which they become aware.

Remember the two
Sexual Assault Victim Advocate
What about a Resident Advisor?

If a student discloses an event in which sexual violence has occurred to the RA while they are actively portraying their role as an RA, they are mandated to report.
If a friend discloses to them while the person is not actively representing their role or capacity as an RA, it does not need to be reported.
Important to know the difference
Technically a mandated reporter, but it depends on the circumstance:
In order for a sexual act to be considered rape or sexual assault, the act must be
Title IX
What is Title IX and what does it do?
