Synopsis:

Address the root causes of stalking behavior with this vital guide

In the approximately thirty-five years since stalking was identified as a form of harmful behavior, addressing its social effects has largely fallen to the criminal justice system. There is significant evidence, however, to suggest that pure criminalization is an ineffective response, and that mental health treatment for people who stalk may be the only serious path to relief for stalking victim. Despite this, however, robust research into treatment for people who stalk remains rare, and relevant resources for mental health providers few.

Treating Stalking is among the first comprehensive overviews of this vital subject. Drawing on decades of combined research and clinical experience, it identifies stalking as a form of maladaptive behavior potentially responsive to psychological therapy and other treatments. It is designed to aid clinicians looking to structure a clinical program and stop stalking behavior.

Treating Stalking readers will also find:

  • Case examples and worksheets from authors’ practices
  • Attention to multidisciplinary programs, including pharmacological and occupational interventions
  • Detailed treatment of ethical and legal issues related to treating stalking

Treating Stalking is a must-have for any psychologist or other mental health professional looking to treat patients who stalk.
