ShantiWorks Team
30th August, 2019

Women and victim-survivors are active in their resistance to perpetrators’ use of tactics of coercive control, abuse and violence. They use sophisticated strategies of maintaining the safety of themselves and their children. These strategies and ways of resisting domination and surviving can sometimes be at odds with dominant discourses and ideas about how a woman, a victim-survivor ’should’ respond and act, particularly when the woman victim-survivor uses physical strategies of resistance and survival. As workers, we need to be able to analyse the ways that power and control is being used by perpetrators in the relationship through patterned tactics of coercive control, rather than an individual incident focus, and distinguish who is doing what to whom and with what impact.
