CONCEPT Professional Training, a global leader in online professional training in forensic mental health, announced today that it has launched a new professional online training program called Assessment & Management of Stalking Using the SAM. The Stalking Assessment and Management (SAM), presented by Dr. Randall Kropp, is a set of comprehensive structured professional judgment guidelines for assessing and managing risk for stalking. Initial research has demonstrated the SAM’s promise for its use by professionals working with stalkers and their victims, with results showing the SAM has good reliability and validity (Kropp, Hart, Lyon, & Storey, 2011).

This training program is intended for diverse professionals including (but not limited to) health care, criminal justice, victim services, security, social service, education, and human resources who are interested in learning more about stalking violence risk assessment or those who are interested in integrating the SAM into their practice.

“The SAM incorporates the latest advances in the SPJ approach to risk assessment, including methods for violence risk formulation and scenario planning,” explains Dr. Randall Kropp.

This professional online training program will specifically cover:

* Describing key concepts for assessing and managing risk for stalking behavior

* Learning to rate the risk factors on the SAM

* Describing how the SAM can be implemented in practice to formulate cases
