Understanding controlling behaviour

In support of the UN’s annual ’16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence’, we’ve invited renowned author and investigative journalist, Jess Hill, to host a webinar to examine controlling behaviour in relationships.

The event will be held between 7pm and 8.15pm on Thursday 2 December and participants are invited to register online.

The UN’s ‘16 Days of Activism’ campaign highlights the impacts of inequality and violence around the world and calls on governments, businesses and individuals to play their part in eliminating gender-based violence.

During the webinar, Jess will share her extensive research 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 a multi-award winning Australian investigative journalist and 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.

The presentation will be available on Council websites for 30 days after the event. 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.
