Controlling or coercive behaviour does not relate to a single incident, it is a purposeful pattern of behaviour which takes place over time in order for one individual to exert power, control or coercion over another.
It is a pattern of behaviour which seeks to take away person’s liberty or freedom, to strip away their sense of self. Such behaviour may include isolation, threats, humiliation, monitoring, assaults or other abuse that is used to harm, punish or frighten a victim.
