Advocates, lawyers, law enforcement, and other first responders are often well-schooled in safety planning with survivors of intimate partner violence. However, many of the most common safety planning tools and methodologies are not relevant to survivors of non-intimate partner (including stranger) sexual assault and stalking. These commonly misunderstood, and severely underreported, crimes require safety plans that are informed by and responsive to survivors’ realities. In this interactive session, we will explore the intersection of stalking and sexual violence, identify stalking behaviors, summarize possible legal remedies to enhance survivor safety, and share examples and strategies to safety plan with and support victims of stalking and sexual violence.

Objectives

As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the stalking behaviors and dynamics that often intersect with sexual assault. 
  • Summarize legal remedies to enhance survivor safety. 
  • Develop safety planning skills responsive to sexual assault and stalking survivors’ needs.
