Guidelines for Stalking Assessment and Management (SAM) Manual
The SAM is a set of Structured Professional Judgment guidelines, the first tools designed for comprehensive assessment and management of risk for stalking (also referred to as obsessional following, harassment, and bullying). It can be used for diverse stalking cases, including stalking perpetrated against ex-intimate partners and other family members, coworkers and other acquaintances, public figures, and strangers. It can also be used in cases where the identity of perpetrators is unknown. The SAM incorporates the latest advances in case formulation, scenario planning, and risk management, including victim safety planning. The manual contains all the information needed to administer, code, and interpret the tool.
