The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault

Originally presented July 17, 2013

Presenter: Michelle M. Garcia—Director, Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime

The Intersection of Stalking and Sexual Assault addresses the often overlooked link between stalking and sexual assault. Stalking is a crime that is often co-perpetrated with other crimes, such as domestic violence and sexual assault.  Research supports a connection between stalking and sexual assault – both pre- and post-assault.  In this webinar, we explore the nature and dynamics of stalking, focusing on its intersection with sexual assault. We also discuss ways in which this information impacts our responses to and services for victims.

This session provides useful information and strategies for a wide variety of professionals, including prosecutors and other lawyers, law enforcement, medical professionals, judges, victim advocates, journalists and communications professionals, and others who interact with and write about sexual assault victims.
