Transcript of Stalking

Stalking A real problem and, for once, not one duct tape can fix. thats right. not even duct tape What is stalking?
Stalking is definded by Lamber Royakkers as "a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly, unwantedly, and disruptively breaks into the life-world of the victim, with whom they have no relationship (or no longer have). Moreover, the separated acts that make up the intrusion cannot by themselves cause the mental abuse, but do taken together (cumulative effect)." It is popularly known as a person fallowing another person, looking through pictures and finding personal information as well as favorite hang out spots and stores How much do you know about stalking? Here is a quick quiz to test your knowlage: http://stalkingawarenessmonth.org/stalkingquiz Now that you know what gaps exist in your knowlage lets go into the specifics of stalking How stalking hurts Some victims of stalking also become victims of other, more physically painful, crimes committed by those who stalk them.

Stalking is often a scary experience for the victims.

Psychological issues are sometimes more detrimental then physical harm. Harmful side effects include: “depression, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, shame, hopelessness and a sense of vulnerability.

It is common for victims to blame themselves (self-blame), especially if the stalking results from an established relationship with the stalker.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalking)

The disruption caused by the necessary change in routine to avoid a stalker is yet another hurt that pulls the victim away from family and friends. Types of Stalkers Acording to "A Study of Stalkers" Mullen et al.. (2000)[8][12] there are 5 main types of stalkers five types of stalkers:

* Rejected stalkers pursue their victims in order to reverse, correct, or avenge a rejection (e.g. divorce, separation, termination).
* Resentful stalkers pursue a vendetta because of a sense of grievance against the victims – motivated mainly by the desire to frighten and distress the victim.
* Intimacy seekers seek to establish an intimate, loving relationship with their victim. To them, the victim is a long-sought-after soul mate, and they were 'meant' to be together.
* Incompetent suitors, despite poor social or courting skills, have a fixation, or in some cases a sense of entitlement to an intimate relationship with those who have attracted their amorous interest. Their victims are most often already in a dating relationship with someone else.
* Predatory stalkers spy on the victim in order to prepare and plan an attack – usually sexual – on the victim.
In other words... Rejected people who can’t get over the past

People who feel they deserve what the victim had

Those deluded into believing the victim is their one true love
People incapable of having a regular relationship with the victim
People who stalk for the intent of hurting the victim

The cyber world:
a stalker's dream Social networking cites like facebook, myspace and twitter make stalking ridiculously easy. These cite leave valuable information in the hands of anyone who cares to click and find out all the information. Pictures are open for all eyes to see. It may be hard to believe that one of your 361 close, personal friends would stalk you. But what about the hundreds or thousands of people you're connected to through them? Things like clubs also give stalkers ample opportunity to find extra information put out by newspapers or on the club cites. Let’s demonstrate the easy with witch we can collect information that put out by the victim and without her permission. We are now cassidy's devoted stalker, lets see what we can find We are going to use the same search engine most of us use everyday: http://www.google.com/ I hope you have learned some valuable information
