Description

In this episode of Psych Matters, Dr Manjula O'Connor, Chair of the RANZCP's Family Violence Psychiatry Network, and Dr Karen Williams, Founder of the advocacy and support group Doctors Against Violence Towards Women, educate Dr Andrew Amos on the legal, clinical, and social functions of the recently established category of domestic violence known as coercive control. Dr O'Connor and Dr Williams explain that the new category was developed to protect a significant number of vulnerable women and children severely harmed by strategic manipulation leaving them entirely dependent upon predatory male partners, without necessarily suffering the grievous assaults or injuries previously required to trigger legal and social remedies.
