Abstract

Coercive control frequently manifests within the framework of intimate relationships and exhibits intricate connections with power dynamics, trauma, and emotional manipulation (Dutton & Goodman, 2005; Stark & Hester, 2018; Walby & Towers, 2018). The efficacy of the criminal justice system in successfully addressing these intricate and deeply ingrained issues may be limited. In certain instances, it may be more suitable to adopt a comprehensive approach that integrates social services, counselling, and education (Barlow et al., 2019). In addition to this the pursuit of more traditional offence may be more efficient and successful.
