The Unmanageable Traumatic Demand of Coercive Control

In this course, Richard Hill explains what coercive control is, why it’s so traumatic for victims, and how we as mental health professionals can help victims of it.

About this course

In this course, Richard Hill (MA, Med, MBMSc, PhD(c); Science Director of CIPPS; Clinical Science Director and Managing Editor of The Science of Psychotherapy) explains what coercive control is and how it creates a “slow whittle” of the victim through confusion, keeping the person off balance, isolating them, and getting them to doubt their sanity. Richard discusses the dynamics of power and shame involved in coercive control. These manifest in behaviours such as gaslighting and stalking, and Richard outlines how you can help victims of each of these. Citing the three main types of coercive controllers, Richard lists what is counterproductive and what is productive when we are working with their victims.
