Dean Judy Postmus, PhD, MSW is a co-editor of a special issue of the Journal of Family Violence. The issue is focused on Intimate Partner Stalking (IPS).
The issue focuses on the current state of research, practice, and policy on IPS. Articles were solicited for inclusion in this special issue throughout 2018 and underwent multiple rounds of peer review. Nine articles were selected for inclusion in this special issue focusing on innovative research methods and analyses related to IPS and identification of current gaps in research and practice. Practitioner perspectives are also offered across multiple articles. There continues to be a dearth of rigorous research on IPS and this special issue highlights emerging research and recommendations for continued research. Policy and practice implications are discussed throughout with a focus on supporting survivors and holding offenders accountable.
