Event Details

Turning Point are pleased to announce our October webinar for the Connect & Learn series

Substance use and Family Violence: Identifying and understanding substance use Coercion for AOD clinicians

Through an exploration of substance use coercion, this webinar will provide participants with an understanding of how the presence of substances within an intimate relationship may co-exist with behviours associated with a broader pattern of power and control found within Intimate Partner Violence.

Coercion is seen as the use of force or manipulation to control and intimidate partner's thoughts, actions and behaviours through violence, threats, degradation, isolation, and/or serveillance.   In the context of intimate partner violence, coercion can involve financial, psychological, physical and other kinds of abuse to undermine and control an intimate partner, including intentionally undermining their partner's treatment and recovery.

Participants will gain an undertanding of how coercive behaviours manifest and may appear within the clinical setting, helping them to identify and also respond and mitigate risks through approaches and frameworks, including MARAM.

For those people who have yet to gain an entry-level understanding of Intimate Partner & Family Violence, including Power and Control, you may wish to watch the replay of a previous webinar on this topic:
