Adolescent stalking: offence characteristics and effectiveness of intervention orders

23 Mar 2009
Description

This paper examines the nature of stalking among adolescents to determine the characteristics of stalkers and their victims and the utility of intervention orders for managing this behaviour. Unlike adult stalking which is usually motivated by rejection, adolescent stalking most often occurs in the context of bullying. There is not yet sufficient evidence to establish the effectiveness of intervention orders.
