Garthe Awarded Grant to Study Impact of Stalking and Cyberstalking

School of Social Work's Rachel Garthe was awarded a grant from the Center for Social and Behavioral Science (CSBS) Small Grant Program, entitled “The Prevalence and Impact of Stalking and Cyberstalking among College Students.”

This project will examine the prevalence of these forms of violence and examine how they coalesce with other forms of violence, including intimate partner violence and sexual assault. Additionally, this project will examine how stalking and cyberstalking behaviors and experiences are associated with substance use, mental health, college adjustment, and help-seeking behaviors.
 
This project aims to inform campus and community-based prevention and intervention efforts in areas of stalking and cyberstalking. Rachel Garthe’s co-investigators are Dr. Nicole Allen (Professor in the Department of Psychology) and Sarah Colomé (Director of the Women’s Resource Center).
