Project Description

One in ten Australians experience stalking victimisation, many suffering psychological, social, and even physical harm as a result. Despite the impact on victims, the frequency of violence, seemingly high rates of reoffending, and the prevalence of mental disorder amongst perpetrators, no validated methods for assessing or managing stalkers exist. This project will be the first to evaluate a structured risk assessment tool for stalkers and develop a psychological treatment programme to reduce violence and reoffending amongst high risk stalkers. It will provide evidence-based practical strategies for managing stalkers, reducing the social and financial burden of stalking behaviour on victims and the community.
