Stalking Victimisation: The Influence of Gender and Relationship Type on Victim Impact and Reported Experience.

As part of a programme of stalking research at the University of Lincoln School of Psychology, we are recruiting participants for the following study. This is to understand further the impact of gender and relationship type on victim impact and reported experience. Therefore we are interested in understanding the experiences of male and females who are victimised and the nature of the relationship between victims and perpetrators. The majority of research in the field to date has focused on females stalked by ex-partners which is the most prevalent form of victimisation. Our aim is to broaden this understanding to also consider male victims of stalking and those where the perpetrator was an acquaintance or stranger.  Please click on the following link:
