Address Stalking Using ATIXA’s Comprehensive Framework

This seminar provides participants with an in-depth look at the complex issue of stalking in the education environment, from prevention to intervention to response, including how it affects students and employees.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members review applicable definitions and response requirements under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Title IX, as well as best practices when working with sophisticated technology/cyber manifestations of invasive behavior. They review how to manage the overbroad federal stalking definition in real-world situations and how this overbreadth can impact our students on the spectrum.

Learn how to identify stalking behaviors, the impact of these behaviors, and your options for response and support for the affected party. Participants will also explore the intersection of Title IX and the work of Behavioral Intervention Teams (BIT) as it relates to risk assessment and response to stalking allegations.
