Risk Assessment

Stalking Harassment and Risk Profile (SHARP) Risk Assessment (this link will take you off of the AVI website)

While many threat assessments focus primarily on domestic violence, SHARP is a tool designed specifically to examine and assess stalking. SHARP is a 43 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 12 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.

If you are experiencing stalking, we encourage you to work with an advocate/counselor from AVI to complete this assessment and to develop safety strategies.  You can learn more about scheduling an appointment here:
