‘Thanks to Engender Equality for a professional and comprehensive coverage of coercive control and how it underpins domestic violence relationships. It's a deep rooted, underground and high risk problem. If more service providers fully understood coercive control they may be better equipped to help domestic and family violence survivors to achieve fair outcomes and freedom from the perpetrator. I am looking forward to your next series of training.’
