Death Threats in the AFL 

17 Dec 2020

Dr. Lisa Warren, clinical and forensic psychologist at Code Black Threat Management, says sending death threats in cloak-and-dagger increases their impact. 


"When someone says, 'I'm going to kill you,' what they do is create a sense of uncertainty: What's going to happen next? Is this going to happen? When's it going to happen? And that uncertainty can be really traumatic," she told ESPN. "What we know about online stalking, as an example: The trauma that is created in the person who is being targeted is about as impactful as people who have been serving in war."

Dr Warren is an internationally recognised expert in the evaluation of those who persistently perpetrate aggression, sexual harms and social media harms.

Warren said that one of the keys to getting back to normal is drawing up and implementing safety precautions aimed at controlling that “What if?” thinking that can be so poisonous. “It’s that creation of uncertainty that gives your threatener power over you. Because the more you are sitting there thinking, ‘What if they do this? What if they do that?’ [then] the threat’s worked."
