In this podcast, stalking is discussed as a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person. It can cause a person to fear for their safety or the safety of others. Each year, over 13 million people experience stalking in various ways - being followed, receiving unwanted communications or gifts, through social media, and other ways. Sometimes, when the stalker is a previous intimate partner, post-separation abuse can occur as stalking. Rachel Gibson, of the National Center for Victims of Crime, guides us through the realities of stalking, how prevalent it is, how it manifests, how it impacts victims, how technology is weaponized by stalkers, and the actions we can take to counter these unwanted behaviors.
