Stalking and harassment

SafeLives training stalking and harassment domestic abuseOur Insights national dataset indicates that more than half (57%) of Idva service users experience stalking and harassment.*

In recognition of this, SafeLives has created a cost-effective, one-day training course designed to help professionals working with victims to develop a best practice response to stalking, through prevention, risk assessment, safety and action planning.

This course is open to all professionals who come into contact with victims of stalking through their work. Key benefits for learners:

  • Understand how the 2012 changes to the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 can be used to help victims of stalking
  • Get the latest advice on how to assess risk for victims of stalking and build effective action plans as a result
  • Enhance your understanding of the benefits of a multi-agency response and how this process works
  • Attain an accreditation that may be used as evidence of continuing professional development
  • Develop your confidence and skills

In addition to learning from experts in the field, it's also a chance for attendees to share your experience and best practice with like-minded professionals.
