This Distance Learning Recorded Webinar by Dr. Randall Kropp focuses on Assessing and Managing Risk for Stalking using the Stalking Assessment and Management Guidelines (SAM). This Webinar focuses on stalking, a unique form of violence due to its nature and diversity. During the webinar, Dr. Kropp will teach participants how to administer the SAM and will discuss implementation issues and the use of the SAM in practice.
The Stalking Assessment and Management (SAM) is a set of comprehensive structured professional judgment guidelines for assessing and managing risk for stalking. The SAM incorporates the latest advances in the SPJ approach to risk assessment, including methods for violence risk formulation and scenario planning. 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).
