BORGES, Jeane Lessinger  and  DELL'AGLIO, Débora Dalbosco. Theoretical-methodological conceptions in the investigation of the phenomenon of stalking in adolescence. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.1, pp. 51-65. ISSN 1677-2970.

This integrative review of the literature discusses the theoretical-methodological aspects in the investigation of the phenomenon of stalking in adolescence. A survey of empirical papers (n=9) was carried out, with emphasis on the adolescent population, in databases PsycINFO, SciELO and PubMed, considering pre-established descriptors - "stalking AND adolescence" and "stalking AND juvenile"- in publications between 2013 and 2018, in English language. The results pointed out different descriptions of harassment behavior, perpetrated face-to-face or online through the technologies, indicating lack of consensus in the literature regarding the criteria to be applied on the definition of the phenomenon. We also observed the lack of standardized instruments in the investigation of stalking in adolescence, since most studies use checklists for their evaluation.

Keywords : stalking; Harassment; Adolescence.
