This course is open to any professional who works with children, families and any adult who is or may be a victim of domestic abuse.
“Not only is coercive control the most common context in which [women] are abused, it is also the most dangerous” (Evan Stark (2007) Coercive Control. How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life. New York: Oxford University Press).
This multi agency workshop aims to ensure staff have a basic awareness, in order to identify and support victims of coercion and control in the context of domestic abuse and safeguarding adults. Now in existence for 5 years, The Serious Crime Act 2015 created the offence of controlling or coercive behaviour in intimate or familial relationships, and it carries a maximum sentence of 5 years’ imprisonment, a fine or both.
Facilitated by CGL, Sussex Police, ASC and ESSCP, this is an opportunity for staff to learn about the nature of coercion and control and how it permeates throughout society. Additionally, you will have the chance to share your own experiences with colleagues from across East Sussex, making the most of the opportunity to consider how best to deal with these challenging and complex cases.
