Training: Assessing and treating stalkers

Op 19.04.2018 organiseert de expertisecel een studiedag over de assessment bij en behandeling van stalkers. Onze spreekster is niemand minder dan Associate Professor Troy McEwan (Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health, Australië), een van de meest gerenommeerde onderzoekers binnen het werkveld.

  • Inhoud van de studiedag

Stalking is a complex and multiply-determined behaviour that can be difficult to assess and challenging to treat. This workshop is designed to give practical, evidence-based advice about the assessment and treatment of stalkers. An overview of relevant research will be provided, before practical focus and discussion of assessment, risk assessment and treatment issues. Using a detailed case study as a guide, participants will learn a framework for assessing and understanding a client’s stalking behaviour. Content will include recognizing common motivations for stalking, understanding the contributing role of psychopathology, conducting risk assessments, and guidance on interviewing stalkers. A framework for treating stalkers will be presented and techniques for addressing treatment needs specific to different stalking motivations and contexts will be outlined.
