The Stalking Resource Center from the National Center for Victims of Crime released a resource in 2009 called How to Start and Facilitate a Support Group for Victims of Stalking. The guide describes its purpose as:
…to guide victim service providers, volunteers, and other concerned community members on how to initiate and implement a stalking support group. This handbook provides recommendations on how to locate partners and community support, identify resources, and engage victims who would like to participate in a stalking support group. It offers guidance on how to choose a leader or facilitator, how to prepare the leader, and how to run support group sessions that help members cope with the impact of stalking.
