Stalking - Nearly 5 million women, over a quarter of the female population, said they had experience of being stalked.
Social media is making it even easier for stalkers to follow and track their victims, accessing the online activities of the targeted person they are able to gain entry into that person’s life. For a large number of people it isn’t the stranger accessing their twitter account that is of concern but people in their own family, an ex-husband, boyfriend or even a work colleague.
Stalking is a pattern of repeated, unwanted behaviour that can happen with or without the threat of violence, whatever the case, stalking is UNACCEPTABLE!
This workshop will analyse the effects of this crime on the victim, how it can lead to anxiety, depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder as well as affecting social and work life, we will also explore the potential escalation to physical and sexual violence.
Stalking is a psychological and a physical crime.
