Understanding why stalking stops

Although there are plenty of theoretical accounts of why stalking starts, few people have considered why a person might stop stalking a particular victim. This is despite the fact that almost all stalking episodes do stop, usually within a year. Researchers at the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science are conducting qualitative research to explore what leads to the cessation of a stalking episode, and how this knowledge can help us to design more effective interventions to stop stalking.
