Commentary on Carr, Goranson, and Drummond (2014)

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


In this issue of the Journal of Threat Assessment and Management, Carr, Goranson, and Drummond draw (2014, pp. 4–22) attention to an important problem, namely, the stalking of mental health professionals (MHPs), and discuss some important issues related to management of this problem. I discuss 2 areas in need of further dialogue that arise from the discussion provided by Carr et al. (2014). The first issue is the need to expand our thinking about management from a focus on individual strategies to a focus on coordinated management plans. The second issue is the need for training institutions and professional associations to play a greater role in preparing MHPs to deal with what is clearly a known occupational hazard—stalking victimization.
