The intensive two-day workshop provides participants with accredited training in the administration and use of the Stalking Risk Profile: Guidelines for the assessment and management of stalkers (SRP). In the course of the two days, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the various motivations for stalking, the different types of risk present in stalking situations and the identification and implementation of appropriate treatment and management strategies. They will be trained in how to use the SRP to provide opinions to assist the courts with sentencing and support other referral services in the development of comprehensive treatment and management plans for stalkers.

The "Stalking Risk Profile" is a structured instrument that offers guidelines for the assessment and management of stalkers. Until recently the instrument was only available in English language. Now a German translation was published.
Details here in German language:
As part of the TARGET project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, researchers at Freie Universität Berlin conducted a systematic literature search of all the available studies dealing with school shootings. The aim of the analysis was to clarify which social dynamics in the social network of perpetrators can be observed in advance as playing an important role in school shootings. Up to now, researchers had assumed that bullying between peers and the social exclusion of the perpetrators were the most prominent factors in school shootings. This study shows, however, that in many cases conflicts with teachers seemed to be a decisive factor in the school shooting cases investigated.
