Description

On this episode, our guest is Evan Stark, a sociologist and forensic social worker who has been working at the interface of feminist activism, child welfare, health research and justice reform since he and his wife Anne Flitcraft, MD helped found one of the earliest Shelters for battered women in l970's. His prize winning book Coercive Control: How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life (Oxford, 2007) helped stimulate the new crime of "coercive and controlling behavior" throughout the United Kingdom and helped broaden the conversation in the United States.  

His new book "What about the Children?" documents the many ways that abusive partners coercively control children and how children respond, holding that it is imperative to treat coercive control as a spectrum.  We will be speaking with Evan about domestic violence and coercive control and unpack some of the myths of domestic abuse and how batterers harm. We hope you will find this helpful in understanding those in your who may be engaging in these tactics and how best to respond and to stay safe.
