Stalking can occur anywhere, in all age groups and between coworkers, spouses, friends, classmates or strangers — every type of relationship has the potential for stalking situations. This workshop provides organizations, schools and businesses with a better understanding of the nature of stalking, including motivations related to different types of stalkers. Specific focus will be given to the complexities of assessment and management of situations related to cyber-stalking. Participants will review an informal assessment tool to help in determining the level of risk and be provided with various options for appropriate management strategies of stalking situations.
