Training the trainer-Stalking

"Stalking

Stalking is unwanted and/or repeated surveillance by an individual or group toward another person. Stalking behaviors are interrelated to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them. The term stalking is used with some differing definitions in psychiatry and psychology, as well as in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offense."


Being stalked is terrifying. I know! The stalker will make it seem like it is something you deserve or asked for. He or she will state that the behavior is normal for them because you have initiated the sequence of events. Ladies and gentlemen, stalking is not normal, it is not warranted. With the increase of social media and hacking from many different sources, stalking can be lethal.


For persons leaving domestic violent situations, stalking can take form in multiple ways. It can include things you may not think about like your grocery store or pharmacy store card. It could include hacking into your phone or car. It can include listening in on your conversations through various devices. Stalking is criminal.


You can go to the Geek Squad at Best Buy stores and have them disable any stalking devices on your cell phone because just changing phone numbers and keeping the same phone does not work with stalkers. You can go to the police department and have them check your vehicle for listening devices. You can also take your computers to the Geek Squad.


Trust your gut instincts and your fear. Stalking is potentially lethal.
