Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Understanding controlling behaviour in relationships

Join acclaimed and multi-award winning investigative journalist, Jess Hill, to discuss damaging relationships and what can be done.

Controlling behaviour is a feature of many intimate relationships and a national crisis.  This webinar examines how some relationships are damaging and dangerous and how we can all help to change the story.

Jess will share her extensive research and take you on a journey to better understand what we now know as ‘coercive control’, what it looks and feels like, and how a relationship can get like that.

Jess Hill is an acclaimed and multi-award winning Australian investigative journalist. Winner of the 2020 Stella Prize for her book ‘See what you made me do’ about domestic abuse in Australia. This book has been adapted into a three-part documentary series for SBS and her podcast ‘The Trap’ has just been released.

Jess's presentation will be available for 30 days after the event on Council websites.  Participants will not be recorded.

This event is proudly brought to you by Knox City Council and supported by participating Councils and EDVOS with funding through Respect Victoria, partnering with DV Vic/DVRCV to deliver and support local engagement as a 16 Days of Activism grassroots initiative.
