Love, Sex, Lies: An Intimacy Check-up

thumbnail.jpgCampus partners from all three schools on the Auraria Campus are coming together to host the eighth annual Love, Sex, Lies: An Intimacy Checkup event on October 15 & 16, 2014 from 10 am to 2 pm. The annual event screens students, faculty and staff for signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships, and provides vital resources to those in need. The event will take place in the Tivoli Turnhalle auditorium.

Participants complete an anonymous survey on the dynamics of their current or most recent relationship, and have an opportunity to privately discuss their results with a counselor/advocate. Staff from community-based domestic and sexual violence service organizations, as well as campus counseling programs, are on hand to provide outreach and resources. In cases where an individual is in an immediate crisis, in-depth support and services is available.

The goal of Love, Sex, Lies is to provide information and assistance to individuals who may not typically seek help for relationship abuse. The event has occurred annually on the campus since 2006, reaching more than 7,000 students, faculty and staff over the years.
