Toward a standard approach to operationalizing coercive control and classifying violence types, by Jennifer L. Hardesty, Brian G. Ogolsky, and colleagues (2015).

Coercive control is central to distinguishing between Johnson's (2008) 2 main types of intimate partner violence: (a) coercive controlling violence and (b) situational couple violence. Approaches to assessing coercive control, however, have been inconsistent. Using data from 2 projects involving divorcing mothers (N = 190), the authors...
