Safety Planning Booklet

Safety Planning Booklet

A resource for agencies working with  survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault or Dating Violence.

As part of the Safety Net Australia Project, WESNET has a booklet designed specifically for women experiencing stalking, domestic violence, dating violence and sexual assault with a high tech twist.

Initially developed in the US by the Florida Coalition to End Domestic Violence (FCADV), WESNET adapted this easy to read and understand booklet for the Australian context.

Now in it’s second edition, it covers how women can protect themselves against unwanted monitoring and other types of online abuse.

 

Technologies covered include:

  • Phones

    Phones including smartphones, texting and voicemail.

  • GPS and location tracking

    Information about how your location can be tracked and what to do about it.

  • Image-based abuse

    Information about what to do if images of you are shared without your consent.

  • Social media and online spaces

    Common forms of abuse through social media and what to do about it.

  • Computer monitoring

    Learn about computer monitoring and spyware.

  • Strategies for dealing with technology facilitated abuse

    Learn about things  you can do to be safer when using technology.

Stalking Log

It also includes a stalking log for women to document abuse. This may subsequently be used by police or legal teams as evidence. Recording information may help document behaviours for violence prevention orders or criminal prosecution.
