This chapter argues that the focus for addressing stalking does not lie in defining the act but in understanding the motivation(s) for the behaviour, which is consistent with developments in the broader aggression field where motivation is argued to be of significance (Ireland, 2008a, 2008b, 2011). In this chapter, potential motivations and various typologies for stalking are considered, along with an examination and application of the advancements made in the aggression field tounderstanding stalkers and their behaviour. Through applying Huesmann’s (1998) Integrated Model of Information Processing, and then key components of aggression treatment to stalking, namely emotional regulation and management, this chapter proposes a framework for treatment intervention entitled the Stalkers Intervention Process (SIP).
