1. Montaquila, Julian M. University Students' Perceptions of Stalking : A Mock Law Enforcement Study.

Degree: 2011, East Carolina University

This study examined how students from a large southeastern university in the U.S. (N = 177) placed in the position of a law enforcement officer judged hypothetical stalking scenarios. Utilizing a 2 x 2 independent groups design all four scenarios varied the victim/perpetrator prior relationship (stranger versus ex-partner) and character sex (male perpetrator/female victim versus female perpetrator/male victim). Scenarios depicting male perpetrators and female victims were identified as more serious than that of female perpetrator and male victim scenarios. Stalking myth endorsement also influenced the degree to which participants felt the depicted stalking cases were serious. However personal stalking experience did not influence participants' judgments of the scenarios. The results suggest that stalking myth endorsement and the presence of a male perpetrator pursuing a female target are influential factors in one's judgment of the degree to which the pursuer poses a threat to the intended target and the subsequent need for law enforcement intervention. ; Psychology, Judgments, Law Enforcement, Perceptions, Scenario, Vignette Advisors/Committee Members: Amy E.

2. Ratajack, Ellen M. The Influence of Gender Identity and Sex on Perceptions of Relational Stalking.

Degree: 2011, East Carolina University

The purpose of this study was to examine how participant and target gender identity may alter perceptions of relational stalking. Gender roles and schemas may help to shape perceptions of stalking and thus change how people will judge a situation as stalking. In addition to examining judgments of stalking this study examined the endorsement of stalking myths and how such endorsements become engrained and supported. A pilot study was conducted to test the portrayal of target gender identity in hypothetical relationship scenarios. The current study examined how participants rated a hypothetical scenario to be stalking based on target gender participant gender and scenario severity. Scenario severity was the only significant predictor for how participants judged a scenario as stalking or non-stalking. Additional analyses indicated that men endorsed more stalking myths than women. The results of this study suggest that more research is necessary to investigate the intricacies of how sex and gender identity may alter judgments of stalking regardless of severity. ; Gender studies, Social psychology, Gender identity, relationships, Sex, stalking myths Advisors/Committee Members: Amy E.
