    Coercive Control: An insidious pattern - Part 2

    Coercive Control: An insidious pattern - Part 2

    Coercive control underlies most experiences of domestic violence and often manifests as an insidious pattern of manipulation that strips victims of their autonomy. It is also a form of child abuse that likely impacts 100% of children living with an abusive parent. In part 2 of our discussion on this topic, we unpack the impact of this form of psychological abuse upon children in the home where domestic violence occurs. Dr. Christine Cocchiola explains how children are entangled in the web of abusive behaviors through coercive control, the distinction between abuse and maltreatment, and how family court fails children through a lack of understanding and legislation to protect them. We also explore ACES as a means to evaluate childhood experiences of abuse and how women and children can heal from the trauma of domestic violence.
    Dr. Cocchiola is a Coercive Control Advocate, Researcher, Educator & Professor of Social Work, and a Survivor who has been dedicated to the field of intimate partner violence since the age of 19. Dr. Cocchiola is a tenured professor at a Connecticut Community College and an adjunct instructor at NYU, teaching in the Social Work Studies Program for over 20 years. This 2-part series on coercive control explores the origins of the term coercive control, the impact covert, non-physical forms of abuse have on both adults and children, the legislation related to domestic violence, and the importance of working with service providers who specialize in coercive control in abusive relationships.

    Reproductive Control & Domestic Violence

    Reproductive Control & Domestic Violence

    Domestic violence is rooted in power and control, and a woman’s reproductive system is often targeted by abusive partners to eliminate her bodily autonomy and further diminish her being. Non-consensual and/or unprotected sex, restricted access to contraception, and other forms of abuse that either encourage pregnancy or deny it are all means to an end in abuse through reproductive control. Our guest, Laramie Gorbett of the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, walks us through the worldwide assault on the bodies of women, how this abuse is compounded by intersectionality, the impact of reproductive control on people who are trans or non-binary, and the suffering of children who are born out of these abusive behaviors. We also explore the issues of reproductive justice, epigenetics, anti-gay laws, and much more in both the United States and abroad to reveal the enormity of control inflicted upon the bodies of women under the guise of the right to life.

    Pride Month Series: This is only the beginning

    Pride Month Series: This is only the beginning

    Genesis Women's Shelter & Support offers domestic violence services to everyone who identifies as a woman. To improve access to services for all intimate partner violence survivors in need of safety, shelter & support, Genesis The Podcast is launching a Pride Month Podcast Series focused on intimate partner violence (IPV) in LGBTQIA+ relationships.
    Each episode in this series is a dialogue with survivors and/or experts highlighting the needs and issues of IPV survivors in the LGBTQIA+ community as well as possible solutions for improved responses to their experiences. Our hope is that this dialogue will grow into new collaborations across communities that expand our understanding of IPV, reduce its prevalence, and provide more equitable responses and services for all survivors of IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships. Media consultant Ron Corning joins the conversation as co-host and interviewer for the series, offering critical insights into IPV among LGBTQIA+ partners.
    Though Pride Month 2022 is coming to a close, this is only the beginning of our exploration of IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships. In this episode, we recap our learning and in doing so expose its gaps and opportunities by expanding on services available to men in abusive relationships with The Family Place - 1 of just 2 organizations in the United States who serve all individuals who identify as men. We also have an open discussion about the signs of abuse, the prevalence of both hatred and abuse toward the LGBTQIA+ community, the alarming risk of suicide among LGBTQIA+ youth, and how anyone experiencing abuse can access safety, shelter, and support that meets their unique needs. 
    A message to the community from Genesis Women's Shelter & Support: As it relates to the mission of Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support, we stand in solidarity with women who have experienced abuse. We stand for women who have no choice. We stand for women who have no voice. We will continue to work day in and day out to empower women to live abuse-free, to think independently and to make their own decisions regarding their physical, financial, spiritual and emotional safety.

Media consultant Ron Corning joins the conversation as co-host and interviewer for the series, offering critical insights into IPV among LGBTQIA+ partners.

    Solutions specific to IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships can be challenging to resource. We've gathered experts in the fields of law enforcement, clinical services, advocacy and more to evaluate what solutions exist, the effort to include all people in those solutions and improve responses to IPV for people who identify as LGBTQIA+. Ron Corning talks with Genesis CEO Jan Langbein and senior director of residential services Jordyn Lawson to understand responses within the domestic violence movement. Maria MacMullin expands on these ideas with presenters from the 2022 Conference on Crimes Against Women who offer diverse approaches to navigating IPV across LGBTQIA+ relationships. Guests include: Sarah Berlanga of The Women's Center, Kimberly Crawford of the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Michael Crumrine sergeant with the Austin Texas Police Department, and Patrick Moug of the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Detroit.

Media consultant Ron Corning joins the conversation as co-host and interviewer for the series, offering critical insights into IPV among LGBTQIA+ partners.
    IPV in same-sex relationships is underreported by survivors. From the incidence data that is collected, rates of IPV among same-sex partners are as high - if not higher - as those reported by heterosexual survivors. High rates of occurrence compounded by fears of reporting the violence and insufficient services and responses pose significant health and safety risks to individuals in abusive LGBTQIA+ relationships. 
    Together with Genesis CEO Jan Langbein and Genesis senior director of residential services Jordyn Lawson, we explore the data of IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships, and the challenges posed to law enforcement, advocates, educators et al who struggle to build alliances across communities that elevate voices, improve responses and expand services so that survivors can be heard, believed and supported. To expand our thinking, we explore Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw's theory of intersectionality within the context of this conversation, education available through the Conference on Crimes Against Women, and training for law enforcement about IPV responses.
