The Injustice of Intimacy

Series 1: Intimate Partner Sexual Violence (IPSV) In these podcasts women share their stories about recognising and getting help for Intimate Partner Sexual Violence (IPSV). IPSV sits in the crossroads of domestic violence and sexual assault. IPSV is another tactic abusers use to take or maintain power and control over their intimate partners. It can have significant impacts on the survivor yet it is often overlooked by workers, sometimes leaving women feeling alone and ashamed about what was done to them. You will also hear from a range of professionals who have worked with women who have experienced sexual violence in their intimate relationships. Series 2: Coercive Control This series aims to bring understanding and insight into the key behaviours of coercive control and the different ways these may be used to abuse and control within an intimate relationship. In each episode we hear from both a woman who has experienced coercive control and a professional from a range of associated fields who share their knowledge, understanding and insight.
