Stalking is intentional behavior, and is not always carried out by someone who is mentally ill. In the old days, stalking meant following someone around. It can and still does mean that, but technology has broadened out stalking behaviors to a great extent. This didactic workshop will cover prevalence rates, myths and realities and types of stalking. We will explore how technology is being used as well as the effects of victimization. Participants will view survivor stories and see some of the methods employed by law enforcement in investigating stalking cases. We will also discuss how to recognize stalking behaviors in offenders and participate in a case study exercise.
