NADP Monthly Member Meeting- The signs of coercive control, abuse seen and unseen; issues for divorce litigation
September 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EDT
What is Coercive Control?
Coercive control tactics are often invisible to outsiders. Domestic violence comprises a range of behaviors beyond physical and emotional abuse. Abusers often use violence, intimidation, degradation, and isolation to deprive victims of their rights to physical security, dignity and respect. While all forms of abuse are about power and control, coercive control is a strategic form of ongoing oppression and terrorism that invades all areas of women’s activity by limiting access to money and other basic resources.
At this member meeting, join Dr. Chitra Raghavan as she discusses what all divorce professionals need to know when dealing with a coercive partner in divorce.
Chitra Raghavan, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in New York City specializing in assessment of sex trafficking, domestic violence, sexual harassment, rape, sexual assault and any other abusive interactions, and the traumatic outcomes these situations engender.
Dr. Raghavan is currently a tenured full professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She is also the Deputy Director of the Forensic Mental Health Counseling Program and the Coordinator for the Victimology Studies in Forensic Psychology.
In 2014, Dr. Raghavan was named as one of “New York’s New Abolitionists” by the New York State Anti-Trafficking Coalition for her work to promote human rights for women and fight human trafficking.
