 ABOUT APATAP

The Asia Pacific Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (APATAP) was established in 2013 from the Australasian Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (AATAP) to be the region’s key body in supporting and developing the cross-disciplinary study and management of threatening individuals and behaviours.

APATAP is affiliated with the American Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP), the European Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (AETAP) and the Canadian Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (CATAP).

APATAP’s aims are:

  • to promote the discipline of stalking and threat management in the Asia Pacific; 
  • to support the development of best practice in cases involving individuals thought to pose a threat to a person or persons they have targeted; 
  • to encourage cross-discipline collaboration in the practice of threat management and the sharing of expertise between disciplines;
  • to support academic research in the field of stalking and threat management;  and
  • to sponsor an annual international conference on threat management.

APATAP hosts a conference, contributes to the Journal of Threat Assessment and Management, and is developing a range of professional education seminars and support to academic research in the fields of stalking and threat management.
