Presenters: Heather NancarrowHayley BoxallEmma Rogers and Jackie Wruck

Domestic and family violence service responses often place physical and sexual violence above other forms of abuse in terms of their risk and potential for harm. However, minimising the harm caused by non-physical forms of violence can have a negative effect on service responses for victim-survivors.

This webinar will explore ways that services can use the language of coercive control to support women to expose patterns of abusive behaviour. Specifically, it will:

  • Describe coercive control and its prevalence in Australia
  • Share one woman’s lived experience of coercive control
  •  Present practical strategies that support women to describe and expose patterns of controlling behaviour.

This webinar will be of interest to professionals working in domestic and family violence, mental health, child protection and other social services.

The recorded webinar will be available on the CFCA website.
