Episode 6: Family violence - coercive control
1477

When Hannah Clarke and her children were doused in petrol and set alight on a Brisbane street in February 2020, less than a year after dentist Dr Preethi Reddy had been stabbed to death in a Sydney hotel room, the Australian public was horrified. Each crime was a seemingly-out of nowhere physical attack committed by the victim’s ex-partner that followed years of non-physical abuse. Each crime was committed by a man who was, to many, not known to be violent. The crimes served as testament to a conclusion family violence experts had known for years: it is the amount of control a perpetrator has over a victim, rather than acts of physical violence, that is the most reliable indicator of homicide risk. 

In this episode, Monica Blizzard, Greg Oliver and Stefan Pantellis discuss issues around family violence and the potential criminalisation of coercive control.

Episode 3: Parenting Coordination
649

In our latest podcast, Monica Blizzard talks about a new service offering in family law – parenting coordination.  Parenting coordinators are professionally trained practitioners (such as lawyers, psychologists, social workers or mediators) who work with separated or divorced parents to help them with the implantation of parenting orders, and to assist with the transition from ex-partners to co-parents, which can be challenging for many.  Monica outlines the role of parenting coordinators, and how they can help separated couples improve communications for the benefit of themselves and their children.
