Perceptions of risk in relation to stalking

With a focus on young people

This year's conference will once again be themed around risk in relation to stalking, but focusing on people’s perceptions of that risk, including—importantly—those of the victims themselves. A victim's own perceptions in this regard are critical in deciding whether, when and how to seek professional help in the first place, just as professionals confronted with a case of stalking must assess the perceived risk from a range of perspectives in forming their own professional judgement of what action to take.

This conference will address risk, our awareness of it, and the victim’s perception of their own risk, in relation to stalking and safety particularly amongst young people. Main conference themes will include

  • Professional understanding of risk from different disciplines 
  • Victim perception of risk
  • Support-network education around risk
  • Risk assessment and safety planning
