The Stalking and Harassment Assessment and Risk Profile

Co-hosted by the Battered Women's Justice Project and the Stalking Resource Center

Date: Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (Central Time)

Presenters:
TK Logan, Professor, Department of Behavioral Science, College of Medicine, and the Center on Drug and Alcohol Research at the University of Kentucky and Teri Faragher, Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Prevention Board, Lexington, KY.

Description: This presentation will introduce the Stalking and Harassment Assessment and Risk Profile (SHARP) and will describe the assumptions and conceptual framework. The overall goal of SHARP is to provide a research informed tool for increasing awareness of stalking by: (1) Assessing the "big picture" of stalking; (2) describing the risk profile to better understand the level of concern and dangerousness of the situation; (3) providing users with a narrative summary of responses to the assessment questions in a word document that can be used for a variety of purposes; and, (4) suggesting research-grounded safety strategies based on assessment responses for consideration. SHARP is a tool that can be used in conjunction with other risk assessments and tools in the field. SHARP can be used by victims or others on behalf of the victim.

Housing Protections for Survivors of Domestic Violence in Rental Housing

Date: Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (Central Time)


Presenters: Renee Williams, Staff Attorney, National Housing Law Project and Catherine Bishop, Senior Attorney, National Housing Law Project. 

Description: Last year, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 into law. The law continues many of the housing protections that had been provided by VAWA 2005 and further expands these safeguards in several crucial ways. For example, the protections extend to more federally subsidized housing programs, cover survivors of sexual assault, mandate emergency transfer plans, and require that housing providers notify applicants and tenants of their VAWA housing rights. The webinar will discuss these protections. The presentation will also provide an overview of the emerging issue of local nuisance ordinances being enforced against survivors, including the recent Norristown settlement. This discussion of nuisance ordinances will also feature an overview of fair housing protections for survivors. Finally, the webinar will address strategies for advocates in interactions with landlords who may not understand or respond to survivor needs. Attendees will be able to ask questions of the presenters.
