IP – This assignment will be a bit different than you usually have to prepare. In this assignment you will make an intake form.
There are three parts-submit all documents as ONE file ( use a zip file) or include all content in ONE word document.
The first part of your presentation-2-3 pages will be an actual essay.
This essay will discuss the importance of recognizing the signs of stalking, the criminal definition of stalking,
and key facts that we should know about stalking.
Use APA format-include title page, abstract and reference page.
Create an intake form that can be used to get information from alleged victims of stalking
Basic example of an intake form can be found: https://cliniclegal.org/sites/default/files/Sample%20Client%20Intake_0.pdf
You will need to transition this intake form to make sense for victims of stalking. Essentially, you are creating your own intake form. You will provide information about the suspect’s information , and information about the incident . It does not have to look exactly like any of the forms that you find online. Just make sure that the form is comprehensive and looks like a complete intake form. There is no one set example for an intake form.
You need to fill in these forms with hypothetical information so they can be tied together. Do not submit blank forms.
The second part of the assignment said to create an risk assessment/evaluation and assessment form that will be based on the intake form you just made.
Make sure that you provide the general information such as name, date etc for the victim as you would on any other assessment form.
You need to fill in these forms with hypothetical information from the intake form so they can be tied together. Do not submit blank forms.
In this assessment form you will present questions about:
The relationship with the victim and the suspect. Include about five or so questions related to this topic.
example question-Do you know who the suspect is? Yes or no
Information about the stalking incident and frequency: Include five or so questions here.
Example question-does a suspect contact you by electronic devices? Yes/ No
Another section might be-Specific threats made by the suspect: Include five or so questions related to this topic.
Example question: Has the suspect made threatening or intimidating calls to communicate with you? Yes/No
Another section might be-Have you taken any actions to stop the suspect behavior-include five or so questions related to this topic
Example question. Have you moved to a new location? yes/no
When you have an evaluation, you should have some type of scale, such as 1-10, or Low ,medium, high etc at the end of the form-this would essentially be the “risk assessment”.
In the risk assessment section, you would sort of explain: Example-if the victim responded yes/no to the specific questions above, this would indicate a “low-level” of stalking risk.
If the victim responded Yes/no to questions 1-5, this presents a medium risk to the victim.
if the victim responded yes to questions 15- 20 this would present a high risk.
However you want to frame this assessment is fine. Just think about your approach here.
Continue to look at evaluation and assessment forms online to get a little bit more clarity about this.
