COERCIVE CONTROL: Shattering myths with Professor Evan Stark

In this episode, Charlotte is joined by Professor Evan Stark, sociologist, forensic social worker, widely published author and an award-winning researcher with an international reputation for his innovative work on the legal, policy and health dimensions of interpersonal violence, including its effects on children. 


Professor Stark coined the term ‘coercive and controlling behaviour’ which now appears on statute books across the world and is a recognised criminal offence in many jurisdictions. Together they debunk myths and examine the impact of coercive control on the lives of children as well as how family courts across the world have failed to properly address coercive control.
