This behaviour is often driven by psychiatric disorder, therefore it is important that mental health professional can have the instruments to assess and manage it properly. Starting from the data observed during the personal experience of the Author, this article outlines a structured profile of the stalker’s personality and its complexity. Psychopathological characteristics, psychosocial history and mental dynamics of the stalker are described. The aim is to provide information about factors contributing to stalking, as well as diagnostic issues that should be considered in the assessment and treatment of these patients.
