Coercive Control

JWI is hosting a new webinar September 3rd from 12-1pm, The Coercive Control Model: How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life. Cost for the session is $25 (but free for members). Pre-registration is required. Dr. Evan Stark, Professor and Chair, Department of Urban Health Administration, Rutgers University, “will discuss what adapting a coercive control model implies for intervention, shelters, forensic evidence and criminal law, etc.”

“Coercive control is used by abusers to trap, isolate and dominate battered women. This webinar will discuss the broader set of tactics men use to oppress women in their personal lives and identify the gap between a woman’s experience of partner abuse and the dominant domestic violence model that guides intervention.”
