A conversation with Jess Hill: domestic abuse and coercive control
Investigative journalist Jess Hill put not only coercive control, but the perpetrators – and the criminal justice system that enables them – into the spotlight with her award-winning book, See What You Made Me Do.
Combining forensic research with riveting storytelling, See What You Made Me Do, calls for a radical rethink on not only the justice system that often reinforces the abuse enacted against women and children, but how we view perpetrators.
Join Jess as she goes behind the facts and figures and explains how we can confront this national crisis and drastically reduce the violence today. Jess will explore and debunk one of the most hurtful commonly asked questions “Why doesn’t she leave?” – instead considering a more pertinent question “why doesn’t he stop?”
She will also explore the impact of society on the perpetration and maintenance of abuse and review ways to assist someone in a domestically abusive situation.
This topic will be presented safely, sensitively, and in an intimate arena with onsite support.
