New reproductive coercion and abuse practice guide

The Australian Institute of Family Studies released a new practice guide in May 2023. This practice guide describes the evidence on reproductive coercion and abuse (RCA). It covers: (a) what RCA is; (b) strategies used by perpetrators; (c) the impacts of experiencing RCA; (d) factors that influence a person’s risk of experiencing RCA; and (e) how to ask about RCA victimisation. Finally, some tips are provided for supporting clients who may be experiencing RCA.
