In the fourth episode of Thursday Thoughtcasts series on coercive control, Dr Torna Pitman unpacks the conversational and behavioural tactics used by coercive controllers to obstruct, avoid and overpower the rights and boundaries of their partners.
Some tactics are fast, unpredictable and shocking; others are chronic and subtle, but no less insidious. All of them serve to demean and erode the self-worth and autonomy of the victim.
This series is for our clients, your clients, your friends or family and the general public. Knowledge saves lives and helps us recognise the loss of human rights inherent to unequal relationships.
