Coercive control is the overarching context that intimate partner violence occurs within. Coercive control involves ongoing, repetitive and cumulative tactics that impact the victim-survivor’s autonomy, liberty and equality.

Register for this event

In technology-facilitated coercive control, various forms of technology are used to extend the perpetrator’s ability to monitor and maintain surveillance of the victim-survivor. Technology also provides avenues to harass, threaten and shame victim-survivors, manipulate their social relationships and ensure compliance with demands.

Victim-survivors commonly experience a combination of technology-facilitated and face-to-face psychological, physical, sexual and/or financial abuse. An important consideration for practitioners is that victim-survivors may not know that what they are experiencing is abuse and may not have the ability to access support because they are being monitored.

Drawing on the latest research and practitioner insights this webinar:

  • Describes what technology-facilitated coercive control looks like in practice.
  • Provides examples of the different ways that victim-survivors might experience technology-facilitated coercive control.
  • Suggests strategies for face-to-face and telehealth practice.

The webinar will feature 4 presenters including:

  • Dr Evita March, Senior Lecturer, Cyberpsychology, Federation University.
  • Niamh O’Connor, Policy Officer, Relationships Australia ACT.
  • Kristen Poel, Regional Services Manager, Better Place Australia.
  • Jasmine B. MacDonald, Senior Research Officer, Child and Family Evidence, AIFS (Facilitator).
