Controlling and coercive behaviour: Exploring the new law on domestic abuse...
This is the first of 2 linked events hosted at Salford University, which will explore the new law which makes controlling and coercive behaviour in intimate or family relationships a criminal offence. This event runs from 2.30 to 4pm, and the follow on event will run from 4pm to 6pm in the same venue.
Participants can attend one or both events. Please register for both events if you wish to attend both of them.
This first event will focus on knowledge from and about survivors of domestic abuse, and on the nature of controlling and coercive behaviour. It is aimed at survivors of domestic abuse, and at workers in organisations who provide domestic abuse related services. This event will begin with a reception and an exhibition of women's words and art about their experiences of coercive control. This will be followed by presentations from survivors of domestic abuse, and from Dr Kate Cook, who will chair the event.
Refreshments will be provided at the event.
