Gender Studies and School of Psychology Seminar presented by Dr Kelly Johnson.

This talk will discuss the recent introduction of a new domestic abuse offence in England and Wales which, drawing upon Stark’s concept of coercive control, criminalises courses of conduct involving a range of abusive practices, including emotional and psychological abuse. Particularly, this talk will present the findings of a research project which investigated how this offence has been operationalised by one English police force, and identifies both problems and possibilities associated with the translation of this offence into practice.​

Presenter: 

Kelly Johnson is an Assistant Professor at the University of Durham. Her research focuses on sexual and domestic violence, and most recently she has worked on police responses to domestic violence and image-based sexual abuse.
