Coercive control is a severe form of domestic violence experienced by millions of children worldwide. It involves a perpetrator using a range of tactics to intimidate, humiliate, degrade, exploit, isolate and control a partner or family member. Some coercive control perpetrators use violence,
others do not. Coercive Control in Children's and Mothers' Lives discusses how children are affected by living in situations wherein mothers employ coercive control. It further discusses how both children and mothers can recover from this form of domestic violence.

Drawing on interviews with children and mothers who have experienced coercive control-based domestic violence, this groundbreaking book sheds light on children's perspectives of coercive control and the many different ways it harms them. Emma Katz argues that the opportunities for children and
mothers to resist it occur in everyday life, not just in dramatic incidents of violence, and it is perpetrators who must be held accountable for their impacts on children. Further, she presents that breaking free from coercive control is not a one-off event but a sustained battle for safety and
recovery in which child and adult survivors need supports and professional interventions that work.

Written accessibly for students, researchers, practitioners, survivors of domestic violence, and anyone with a general interest in the topic, the book provides a child-centered perspective to revolutionize our understanding of how children are affected by coercive control-based domestic violence.
