What is 'coercive control' ?

Conference on Coercive Control is a start up with expert speakers talking about all aspects of coercive control, what it is, what is covered by the Serious Crime Act 2015, how to identify and evidence it.

Next Conference: 6th March 2017   (venue to be confirmed) 

Here is what experts said about the UK's first conference on coercive control held on October 6th 2015: 

'The Conference on Coercive Control is an opening salvo in this much needed dialogue and a great way to open Domestic Violence Month.'  

 Professor Evan Stark

'An entire conference dedicated to Coercive Control! This will be an amazing experience. Everyone in the fields of criminal justice, the law, mental health, social work, and domestic violence will benefit from attending. It promises to be an informative and exciting day and one which will widely impact the ability of people in the UK to help those who are held hostage in their intimate relationships.'
