AFCC published their Guidelines for Examining Intimate Partner Violence in 2016. In 2020, California amended Section 6320 of the Family Code to include critical dynamics of coercive control, specifying a pattern of behaviors that “unreasonably interferes with a person’s free will and personal liberty”. This workshop will highlight examples from the legislation and, using the AFCC Guidelines related to IPV, outline suggestions for assessing this critical issue.
