How to support clients exposed to technology-facilitated coercive control | Royal Women’s Hospital

December 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Presenters: Dr Evita March, Niamh O’Connor and Kristen Poel. Facilitated by Dr Jasmine B. MacDonald

Technology-facilitated coercive control includes the use of mobile and digital technologies in online sexual harassment, stalking, surveillance, and image-based abuse. Victim-survivors commonly experience a combination of technology-facilitated and in-person abuse. Technology provides a way to extend the perpetrators ability to monitor and maintain surveillance of the victim-survivor. However, the nature of technology-facilitated coercive control means that victim-survivors can find seeking help to be challenging.

Reviewing the latest research and practitioner insights this webinar:

  • Describes what technology-facilitated coercive control looks like in practice.
  • Provides examples of the different ways that victim-survivors might experience technology-facilitated coercive control.
  • Suggests strategies for face-to-face and telehealth practice.
