In spite of all this it is difficult to find a comprehensive, up-to-date and clearly written account of what happens, who does it and what one can do about it. This book does all that, and much more. Pathe is well qualified to write it, being a consultant forensic psychiatrist at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health in Melbourne, where she has been treating stalkers in the worlds first clinical outpatients program, since the early 1990s. She is co-director of the Stalking and Threat Management Centre and is co-author of the best-selling Stalkers and their victims, and winner of the American Psychiatric Associations Guttmacher Award for an outstanding contribution to the literature on forensic psychiatry.
