Coercive Control and Domestic Violence: What Is It? How Do You Prove It?

Coercive Control and Domestic Violence: What Is It? How Do You Prove It?


What is trauma-informed representation and how can legal advocates and attorneys who work with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault take a trauma-informed approach to their work?

As more organizations adopt a trauma-informed approach to domestic violence and sexual assault cases, advocates need to understand how best to apply these techniques in real world situations. This program will provide a practical framework and offer concrete tips for applying a trauma-informed approach to supporting survivors in the context of interviews and legal proceedings. A core component of the CLE is the demonstration of the tools and sensitivity techniques via mock interviews. The program will also cover new and proposed legislation on coercive control.
