PIRES, Sara; SANI, Ana Isabel  e  SOEIRO, Cristina. Stalking and cyberstalking: co-occurrence and victimization patterns in university students. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.2, pp. 5-21. ISSN 1809-5267.

This research analysed the co-occurrence and the respective victimization patterns of stalking and cyberstalking in college students through the Inventário de Vitimação por Stalking and the Escala de Avaliação de Ciberstalking. The sample was collected from 1081 Portuguese college students, aged from 18 to 58 years (M = 22.8; SD = 4.94). The results demonstrate 24.0% of stalking rates, 22.8% of cyberstalking and 15.4% of co-occurrence of both types of violence. The 167 simultaneously victims of stalking and cyberstalking were predominantly female and the perpetrators were male. The behaviours of stalking and cyberstalking were actions thought of as apparently harmless and intimate. These results support the need to develop policies for prevention and intervention with college student victims of both forms of violence.
