Remember...

There are four primary forms of domestic abuse: physical, emotional, sexual and financial.

What is coercive control?

Coercive control is a form of domestic violence which involves a strategic form of ongoing oppression used to instil fear. This instilled fear limits the victim’s human rights as it deprives them of their freedom and ability to take action.

Some experts have spoken out on coercive control and made comparisons to being taken hostage. In both cases, the victim’s world is regulated by the abuser, as they’ve been trapped in an environment of fear and confusion.

Therefore, although coercive control is more subtle than physical abuse, it’s every bit as harmful. Hence, why it’s an illegal form of abuse in the UK.
