A Training for Domestic Violence Service Providers and Allied Professionals
Research indicates that millions of adults are stalked each year, yet stalking is a crime that is often misunderstood, minimized, or missed entirely. In this interactive training for domestic violence service providers and allied professionals, we will explore:
- risk factors associated with intimate partner stalking;
- the ways in which abusers misuse technology, including spyware, GPS tracking, social media, spoofing, and many online spaces to harass and stalk survivors;
- steps a survivor can take to more safely use technology and considerations for documentation and evidence collection; and
- how service providers can help survivors assess the stalking.
2.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for this training. CEUs are free for MNADV members and $15 for non-members. Please bring cash or check with you to the training.
