Summary This book offers mental health professionals and attorneys a review of current research on stalking and related forms of obsessional harassment as well as recommendations for assessment and treatment of young stalking victims and perpetrators. The book explores related forms of obsessional harassment such as bullying, sexual harassment, and dating violence and provides a psychodynamic conceptualization of stalking with a particular emphasis on developmental issues related to attachment, identity formation, and emotional states involving jealousy, envy, and anger. Practical recommendations for managing stalking cases, implementing policy, and maintaining personal safety make this book a resource for mental health professionals, parents, and school officials.
