Unacceptable Behaviour: 8 Examples of Coercive Control

August 03, 2018  |   Posted by :   |   Blog

We wrote recently about the dangers of psychological abuse such as coercive control and gaslighting. The complicated nature of this kind of emotional abuse means that it can be difficult to recognise and even harder to escape. So we’ve put together a list of the most common examples of coercive control below – if you or someone you know might be suffering from any of these issues, please get in touch for further advice, or contact one of the organisations at the end of this post.

Remember that none of these behaviours are acceptable, and all of them are prosecutable in the case of emotional abuse under current legislation, carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison. For more information on cericive control, gaslighting, and the psychological effects of abuse, please get in touch with us at info@franceslindsay.co.uk or 01628 634667, or contact one of the organisations below:
