Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) Online Expert Q&A: “The Intersection of Stalking, Sexual Assault, and Domestic Violence.”
April 18, 2018 | 2:00 PM
Stalking is generally defined as a course of conduct (rather than a one-time act) directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person fear. This course of conduct may be a combination of overtly criminal acts and otherwise nonthreatening behaviors, all of which frequently intersect with domestic violence and/or sexual assault. In this session, providers will learn how understanding these links improves their response to victims and the provision of appropriate victim services.
