Description
Summary:This article offers a structure for trying to distinguish between different types of stalking and for assessing the outcome of these different types of incidents. Using a law enforcement experiential paradigm, 10 stalking victims pilot-tested a questionnaire of 148 items. Revisions provided a 46-item checklist. In addition, 30 cases were used to pilot-test a typology of stalking based on the nature of the relationship-nondomestic or domestic; the content of communication-nondelusional or delusional; level of aggression-low, medium, or high; level of victim risk; motive of stalker; and outcome of case.
