Coercive Control: The Narcissist's Weapon of Choice
COERCIVE CONTROL: THE NARCISSIST’S WEAPON OF CHOICE is a breakdown of Coercive Control, the subtle, insidious of psychological abuse favored by narcissist’s seeking to subjugate their targets.
“Coercion is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation, and intimidation or other abuse that’s used to harm, punish or frighten the victim.”
“Controlling behavior is a range of acts designed to make a person subordinate and/or dependent by isolating them from sources of support, exploiting their resources and capacities for personal gain, depriving them of the means needed for independence, resistance and escape and regulating their everyday behavior.”
Forensic Criminologist Dr. Jane Monckton Smith describes Coercive Control as the most significant predictor of domestic homicide. She also cites ‘gaslighting’, a form of psychological manipulation aimed to make the target question their reality, as the hallmark of Coercive Control.
