SEEK THEN SPEAK offers sexual assault survivors and support people a way to privately gather information and explore options for medical care, supportive services, and reporting to police (SEEK). If they choose, survivors can then begin the process of reporting to police by completing a detailed, self-guided interview (SPEAK).

Stalking & Harassment Assessment and Risk Profile

While many threat assessments focus primarily on domestic violence, SHARP is a tool designed specifically to examine and assess stalking. SHARP is a 48-item web-based assessment which provides an assessment of the “big picture” of the stalking situation. It also provides a situational risk profile that consists of 14 factors associated with a wide variety of harms including physical or sexual attack, harm to others, ongoing and escalating stalking and harassment, and life sabotage.

SHARP is free to use and provides both a narrative of the stalking situation and the risk profile as well as information about stalking risks and safety suggestions.
