WEBINAR - The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault

The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault will address the often overlooked link between stalking and sexual assault.

Research supports a connection between stalking and sexual assault – both pre- and post-assault. In this webinar, we will explore the nature and dynamics of stalking, focusing on its intersection with sexual assault. We will also discuss ways in which this information impacts our responses to and services for victims.
