A Practical Guide to Coercive Control for Legal Practitioners and Victims

Rachel Horman

A practical guide to coercive control and its relevance to different areas of law with a particular focus on family law, including why the law was necessary, the problems facing victims when utilising legislation, risk assessment of victims, the link between coercive control and stalking, protective orders available for victims, legal aid, and how coercive control is relevant to family court proceedings. Whilst coercive control is not a new phenomenon, the law prohibiting it and the use of the phrase is relatively new and it is still very much a developing area of law and an area which is still often overlooked by the criminal and family justice system.
