Every day you hear another statistic about victims of cyberbullying. Teens and tweens unknowingly invite strangers into their worlds. They provide the ammunition for these strangers to emotionally tear them down when online relationships fall apart, as they typically do with teens. Reality television is partly to blame. We see into the worlds of private, everyday citizens with nothing deemed too personal. With the popularity of social networking combined with the real aspects of reality television, teens and tweens believe it's acceptable to put their entire lives on display. They don't understand that to some, it's a game of voyeurism and that some choose their victims online.For years Alexis A. Moore played the game. She was the target of playground bullies and she didn't realize that she gave the bullies the ammunition they needed to target her. It was in the third grade when she first learned the saying, "They can't get your goat if they don't know where it's tied." As a young child, the meaning behind the words didn't sink in until years later after surviving domestic violence and online stalking that she learned how to tie her goat. Now she's teaching others the difference between being social and smart online and tying your goat where everyone has access to it and knows how to "get your goat." Today, Moore has transformed herself from victim to survivor as a nationally recognized advocate for domestic violence and cyberstalking and bullying victims. She is leading the way in bringing awareness to needed reform of the current system of domestic abuse treatment after founding and serving as President of Survivors in Action (, a nationwide non-profit advocacy group that supports victims of crimes including domestic violence, identity theft, elder abuse, cyberstalking, stalking, child abuse, rape, and sexual assault.In her efforts to bring awareness, Moore has given presentations across the country and has been featured on ABC's Good Morning America. She has also contributed articles on domestic violence, stalking, and cyberstalking for outlets such as The New York Times, Glamour, and She keeps other survivors up-to-date with news and trends with her blog at http: // Moore's story arc is certainly clear-from victim to victim's advocate-from scared, uninformed girl to woman in control of her life. Moore is an experienced high-tech investigator and shares her sage advice for online safety in a manner which parents and caregivers of teens and tweens can relate and then utilize in their protection efforts--starting with her playground experience and the lesson that she has never forgotten.99 Things Parents Wish They Knew Before...

The Victim's Guide to Surviving the Narcissist/Sociopath Updated and its first position 300-plus page Pre-Book is a two books-in-one book designed to assist victims of covert spousal predators and their support persons understand the reality of the covert spousal predator (i.e. the narcissist, malignant narcissist, sociopath/psychopath, dual diagnosed/dual diagnosable, narcopath). This material delves into the worst case scenario possible for the spousal victim as well as common red flags, exploitation, strip-mining, predatory take-ALL agenda and abuse patterns perpetrated by the covert spousal predator in his/her hunting prime and afterward when the predator decompensates. Many valuable references are provided throughout this book for further education/research and understanding. Readers are strongly encouraged to continue their review of material created by all of the referenced educators and authors listed in this book. Moreover, the top mistakes made by victims, support persons for victims, professionals, law enforcement and others are detailed in the hopes that readers will avoid making as many of these errors as they face various scenarios with the predator or predators in their lives or in the lives of others they are attempting to assist. For spousal victims in the worst case scenario with an empowered/aided and abetted covert spousal predator (i.e. situations where common minor children are involved) this book covers topics typically not touched in the material of others. This book is not about overt spousal predators (i.e. abusers whose victims can effectively use the system and/or domestic violence shelter assistance to flee) though overt predators perpetrate many of the same abuse patterns minus the skill of becoming aided and abetted via abuse by proxy scams, which are commonly the mainstay of the covert predator's take-ALL agenda.

One woman with two different lives: Sarah Kate Henecke ~ Alessandra V. Toscanelli. A strangled tale of Domestic Violence, the struggle to survive the darkest moments, & the twisted journey to BEDAZZZLING My Sweetest ALOHA. This is the story behind the blog... Behind the drama... Behind the court cases... It is a paparazzi life & a photogenic smile of woman who struggles to survive the never-ending abuse of a flawed system for Domestic Violence Survivors, the abuse of her abuser, & the twisted obsession of those who refuse to face the truth of Domestic Violence. The cyber-stalker: "Gotta laugh at the horrible makeup job for that black eye. Even Photoshop can't make that look real! A black eye from a strangulation case. Why didn't she put makeup on her neck and at least try to associate the photo with the case she mentioned? Look at that case. The charges were dropped. Wouldn't it be nice to read the police report associated with that case? It was not included in this "book". Wonder what the author has to hide..." ~ no one of consequence, Amazon Review on My Darkest Secrets."If this is like the other publications by this author, this is libel against her ex-husband and others, whom she has named and pictured. She and her co-author should be sued for this. Not worthy of even one star." ~ no one of consequence, Amazon Review on My Sweetest Aloha.The false accusations: "Unless you are Alessandra, and I wouldn't put it past her to make some bogus profile just so she could comment on her own books." ~ Misty, Amazon Comment on My Sweetest Footprints. (A book that has nothing to do with Domestic Violence or the story of how I changed my name...).The comforting comments of those who study Domestic Violence: "I feel terrible for the children, taken from their mother due to a bogus default judgement, and now they are forced to live with their monster of a father. He has stated that he loves and cares for his children, but it's obvious that he only wanted custody in order to punish his ex-wife for leaving with his children (even though she was doing the right thing). Even after he was granted custody of the children he continues to attack his ex online. It's sad and pathetic." ~ Doesn't Matter, Amazon CustomerThe cycle of the cyber-stalker with an agenda to shame my past: "Maybe you should try posting police reports, you know, all those reports where you admit to the police that you attacked Darin repeatedly and tried to make up phony rape charges, among other ridiculous lies." ~ no one of consequence, Amazon ReviewerOne thing is certain... The flames of the past burn brightly as Domestic Violence repeatedly interrupts my bedazzling journey to letting it all go & healing the wounds created by years of a terrible marriage to Darin.

The Routledge Handbook on Victims’ Issues in Criminal Justice is a comprehensive and authoritative handbook on current issues, with a distinctive emphasis on the delivery of suitable and effective services. The editor provides an introduction and conclusion to the handbook, synthesizing original contributions from current leaders in the field, surveying victims’ rights in the United States, victim participation in the criminal justice system, victims’ welfare and needs, and most notably the services that have been developed in response. A section on special populations in the United States brings focus to current and emerging issues faced within the country, while a section covering international and transnational victimization explores globalization and the implications of other legal traditions and systems. This handbook addresses the crucial and complex topic of victims’ issues, examining both societal and governmental reactions to victims’ concerns and acquainting readers with the issues that discord may cause, and how they affect the provision of services. This book will serve as an essential reference for academics and practitioners working with crime victims, as well as for students taking courses in victimology, criminology, sociology, and related subjects.

Counselling Survivors of Domestic Abuse explains how counsellors can facilitate recovery from domestic abuse within a secure, supportive therapeutic relationship. There has been growing awareness in recent years of the impact and consequences of domestic abuse, especially the relationship between domestic abuse and mental health. To appreciate the nature of trauma caused by domestic abuse, professionals need to understand its complex nature and the psychobiological impact of repeated exposure to control and terror. This book examines the therapeutic techniques and specific challenges, such as secondary traumatic stress, faced by professionals when working with survivors of domestic abuse. The author stresses the importance of identifying domestic abuse so that it can be addressed in the therapeutic process to aid recovery, and explores issues such as safety and protection, the long-term effects of abuse and the importance of grieving to the restoration of hope. This book is essential reading for counsellors, therapists, social workers, mental health professionals, health care professionals including GPs and midwives, managers of refuges, legal professionals and all those working with survivors of domestic abuse.

Cybercrimes are often viewed as technical offenses that require technical solutions, such as antivirus programs or automated intrusion detection tools. However, these crimes are committed by individuals or networks of people which prey upon human victims and are detected and prosecuted by criminal justice personnel. As a result, human decision-making plays a substantial role in the course of an offence, the justice response, and policymakers' attempts to legislate against these crimes. This book focuses on the human factor in cybercrime: its offenders, victims, and parties involved in tackling cybercrime. The distinct nature of cybercrime has consequences for the entire spectrum of crime and raises myriad questions about the nature of offending and victimization. For example, are cybercriminals the same as traditional offenders, or are there new offender types with distinct characteristics and motives? What foreground and situational characteristics influence the decision-making process of offenders? Which personal and situational characteristics provide an increased or decreased risk of cybercrime victimization? This book brings together leading criminologists from around the world to consider these questions and examine all facets of victimization, offending, offender networks, and policy responses.
