The purpose for this intensive training is to explore, through lecture, discussion and case review, the etiology and psycho-behavioral analysis of stranger and domestic stalking. Participants will explore motivations of stalkers, victim-offender relationships, and levels of psychopathology. Special attention is given to stalking techniques used in cases of domestic violence and escalation of physical and psychological violence, intimidation, and harassment. Some of these techniques include triangulation, cyber-stalking, and the use of the legal system and social media to stalk, harass and manipulate intended victims. Current societal attitudes and law enforcement responses to stalking victimization will be examined. Protocols for threat assessments and risk management techniques will help participants in developing effective responses to stalking victims.
