Exploring & Understanding Coercive Control – Podcast Resources

Looking to deepen your understanding of Coercive Control and Trauma-Informed care? We recommend these valuable podcasts:

The first Podcast is by Psych Matters and is titled Exploring the Impact of Coercive Control: Perpetrator Strategies, Entrapment, and Suicide. 

In this episode, Dr Andrew Amos is joined by Dr Manjula O’Connor and Dr Karen Williams for a second, more clinically oriented podcast on Coercive Control.

Dr Karen Williams describes specific strategies used by male perpetrators to systematically destroy female partner’s sense of agency and eliminate alternative sources of social, emotional, and financial support.

Dr Manjula O’Connor reports research showing how the learned helplessness associated with complete dependence on their abusers significantly increased the risk of suicide in a group of Australian women subject to coercive control.

The podcast ends with a broad-ranging discussion including the societal changes which are needed for a definitive solution.

The second Podcast is by Strength In Numbers and is titled Dr. Karen Williams – Psychiatrist on Coercive Control and Trauma Recovery.

This podcast explores the concept of coercive control, the changes made since Dr. Williams’ testimony to the Joint Select Committee in 2021, and the ongoing challenges faced by survivors in seeking justice and support. Dr. Williams explains how coercive control shows up, its long-term effects on survivors, and the critical need for trauma-informed care.

Listeners will learn about the complexities of trauma recovery, the importance of community and safe spaces, and the role of healthcare professionals in providing compassionate and informed care.
