Stalking: What we know and why it matters
Jackie Craissati and Kerry Beckley are joined by Kirsty Butcher and Victoria Tunbridge from the Multi-Agency Stalking Project, Southern Health NHS Trust, to debate some of the more challenging aspects of the assessment and management of individuals who perpetrate stalking behaviours. The 90 minute conversation ranges from the utility of current definitions, to typologies and key risk factors that are particularly relevant to this type of offending behaviour, illustrated by case examples. Kirsty and Victoria provide us with some tips for engagement, interventions to reduce risk and management approaches and we draw on case examples throughout the discussion. Come join the conversation.
