Couple (Library)

    Resident advisers in universities are part of the front line addressing the issue of sex on campus.

    But other services are certainly needed especially for students not living on campus and for faculty. These include the use by the entire university community of on-campus counseling as well as use of off-campus services in the community. 

     These services are generally very extensive with a good track record. It’s good that this general issue of campus sex is now being openly debated and universities are becoming more aggressive about recognizing and addressing it.

     Coordinating with those professionals in private practice and other state and county agencies is a good idea. Leveraging all resources make good economic and social sense for a complicated and serious problem.

Mental Health Services & Universities ….. Great Demand …. Need More Support.


     Mental health services offered by universities are experiencing a growing demand. This demand  involves both college-related issues but also the whole spectrum of mental health issues. Both men and women are demanding more services. There is some evidence that men are a bit hesitant requesting those services. But that is changing.

     Services are being requested at all levels from the new student to the military veteran and at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. More support is needed at most universities especially the public universities.

How An Affair is Discovered Predicts If Couples Reconcile …. The Probabilities Differ.


A recent article (based upon earlier studies) describes what the probability is for reconciling a couple’s relationship after an affair. It determines the probabilities differ according to how the affair is discovered. This is very interesting. Is it revealed by a third party? By an admission? By catching them actually together? Not surprising the lowest probability is if the affair is discovered by them actually being together.
