A practical guide to coercive control and its relevance to different areas of law, including why the law was necessary, the problems facing victims when utilising legislation, risk assessment of victims, the link between coercive control and stalking, protective orders available for for victims, legal aid, and how coercive control is relevant to family court proceedings.

Whilst coercive control is not a new phenomenon, the law prohibiting it and the use of the phrase is relatively new and it is still very much a developing area of law and an area which is still often overlooked by the criminal and family justice system.

This book will help practitioners get up to date with this area of law and quickly point them to the relevant factors they need to consider when advising clients.
