Distance Learning Home Study Program
The self-paced online training program 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).
The fee for this training program is $500 and includes all materials and worksheets. In addition, case studies and other case-relevant materials are provided for training purposes. Participants are expected to be present and commit 20 hours to completing this training program. Throughout the training program there will be quizzes that must be passed with a 70% in order to advance in the course. Once the course is completed participants will complete a course evaluation and then will be able to print their certificate of completion.
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. This training program is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.
