    Working with situations of coercive control - tools for supporting people

    Posted by Jill Anderson on February 15, 2017 at 9:00 3 Comments

    This website is for social workers and other health and social care practitioners to develop their knowledge and skills in working with situations of coercive control.

    Coercive control is now recognised as the behaviour that underpins domestic abuse. It is a pattern of behaviour which seeks to take away the victim’s sense of self, minimising their freedom of action and violating their human rights.

    The Serious Crime Act 2015 creates a new offence of controlling or…

    Some studies estimate that each year, around a quarter of the population of Western countries will suffer from at least one mental disorder. Should this be interpreted as evidence for the progress of psychiatry, a discipline that is now able to identify and treat mental illnesses that have always existed, or might it be the case that modern life somehow creates new conditions, or social pathologies? This book argues that in fact something more fundamental has been taking place in…

Over 15% of the UK public takes a psychiatric medication on any given day, and the numbers are only set to increase.
