Recognizing and Responding to Stalking



Stalking is a crime that is far more prevalent than most people realize. Stalking is one of the most pervasive and serious public health issues facing the United States today. Research indicates that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 13 men report experiencing stalking victimization during their lifetime in which they felt any amount of fear. This course is designed to enhance your understanding of stalking by reviewing key findings from the research on stalking, identifying common tactics used by stalkers, and exploring the intersections between stalking, intimate partner violence, and sexual violence. The course will also examine common reactions experienced by victims/survivors of stalking and discuss ways to assist victims/survivors of stalking.

1.  Participants will be able to define stalking.

2.  Participants will be able to describe at least five common stalking tactics.

3.  Participants will be able to discuss at least five resources and interventions that can be used to assist victims/survivors of stalking.
