Stalking and Psychosexual Obsession is a comprehensive and international survey of what is known about stalking and psychosexual harassment today, presenting research and theory never before assembled in one volume.

Julian Boon and Lorraine Sheridan have expertly drawn together key authors from the diverse spheres of psychology, psychiatry, the police and the law to provide new insights into this complex, disturbing and socially–relevant phenomenon.

Features include:

∗ Discussion of victimology, violence, risk assessment and case–management issues

∗ A new stalker classificatory system that offers advice on how to identify different types of stalkers with different intervention strategies suggested for each case

∗ Aspects of therapeutic intervention for both stalking offenders and their victims, cyberstalking, global legal contexts, and the special cases of stalking as it relates to female and juvenile perpetrators

This book is invaluable to advanced students, practitioners and researchers in forensic and clinical psychology, psychiatry, and personality psychology, and to practitioners and policy makers in policing and criminal justice.

"What a pleasant surprise to have read a coherant and informational book on stalking. Unlike many other purported scholarly books and papers, this book has produced what is known and unknown to the readers. That is, the book is a foundation on which others may learn and build the future. Also, it could serve as a benchmark for future writing to be added, edited and measured." Richard Walter, Director, Omega Crime Assessment Group, Pennsylvania, USA

"On behalf of many victims, thank you for writing such a comprehensive, accurate book about stalkers, victims and the effects and causes of stalking. I feel so privileged to know and have worked alongside many names in this book who are, in my estimation, all true experts in this field." Tracey Morgan, Director, Network for Surviving Stalking
