Violence against women has been around as long as…well, as long as women have been around. And the reasons haven’t changed much over the millennia. But the past 30 years of technological advancement has ushered in a sea change of novel tactics and tools used by batterers and stalkers to control, harass, and intimidate another. And for the first time in history, they can do it from a distance. This course, written for therapists, contains useful information for all women and those in same-sex relationships who might have an abuser partner…or ex. This course will cover the technologies used, the tactics employed, and the effects on the victims of batterers and stalkers who use the tools afforded by our internet-connected lifestyles.  Some sage advice for potential victims that can be shared by therapists is included to help avoid one becoming a victim.
