Stalking and intimate partner abuse

The association between post-relationship stalking and intimate partner abuse that occurs during a relationship is poorly understood and under-researched. Researchers at the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science have investigated this relationship by looking at intimate partner abuse during a relationship and stalking after its end, and the psychological characteristics associated with going on to stalk an ex-partner. The results of this research are summarised here:
