Surviving Economic Abuse is running a series of free webinars over the next few months, increasing understanding and awareness of economic abuse across six key issues. These include privately owned housing, banking, coerced debt, children, COVID-19 and the police.
Each session will provide an overview of the key theme and how it sits within the context of economic abuse
The forthcoming Domestic Abuse Bill will recognise that children experience abuse in their own right - rather than being witness to it. Yet research refers only to adverse emotional, physical and social effects: the economic impact is overlooked. This webinar will explore how children experience economic abuse in the context of coercive control (including post-separation) and what it means for their life chances.
Attendees will hear from: Dr Nicola Sharp-Jeffs, Dr Emma Katz, Professor Liz Kelly and Expert by Experience, Tom Mitchelson.
There will be time to ask questions and share reflections.
