What is coercion and control?

In 2015, England and Wales became the first nations in the world to criminalise controlling behaviour within relationships. But what is coercion and control? How do you spot it and what’s the law?

A complex needs Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (IDVA) talks about this complex form of domestic abuse, offering expert advice to help you increase your own knowledge and understanding. A question and answer session follows where the IDVA is joined by a panel of IDVAs from across the Kent Integrated Domestic Abuse Service (KIDAS) to answer the audience’s questions.  Watch the webinar (watch time approx 1 hour).
