What Does Abuse Look Like When There Are No Bruises?

Megan Hunt Dell presented on the topic: “What Does Abuse Look Like When There Are No Bruises?” 

The presentation covered the concept of coercive control as a type of intimate partner violence, how coercive control dynamics are similar to those in kidnapping and other capture crimes, and how to recognize coercive control tactics in Family Court cases.

The materials also detailed how to distinguish between violence that is part of coercive control and that which is considered “situational couple violence.” Attendees learned forensic evaluations are not especially useful for identifying coercive control and how the coercive control dynamic can be shown even after a couple separates.
