Abstract

Stalking is a form of interpersonal victimization that can have profound effects on targeted individuals by necessitating unwanted life changes and instilling fear that may persist long after the stalking has stopped. This article reviews current literature on stalking, presents a case study of a woman who was stalked for 3 years by a near-stranger, and offers recommendations for nurses and other mental health clinicians who work with victims of stalking.
