Synopsis

Stalking and Psychosexual Obsession Psychological Perspectives for Prevention, Policing and Treatment by Julian Boon

The recent increased focus on high profile stalking cases has led to the raising of public awareness and professional concern, however, only recently has there been substantial scientific research into the area. Stalking and Psychosexual Obsession represents a showcase of contemporary research and theory never before assembled in one book. The contributions which are drawn from the diverse spheres of psychology, psychiatry, the police and the law provide a comprehensive picture of what is currently known about stalking. Each of the chapters not only takes stock of existing research, but provides ground-breaking new insights. Among the topics covered are victimology, violence risk assessment and case management issues and a new stalker classificatory system is presented which offers advice on how to identify different types of stalkers with different intervention strategies being suggested for each case. A comprehensive, global showcase of contemporary thought, ideas, research and practice An international team of expert contributors from diverse backgrounds, including, psychology, psychiatry, police and the law
