      Hi Everyone, The University of Bristol, with Women’s Aid, have been commissioned by the Oak Foundation to carry out research into coercive control, including the use of prescribed medicines, treatment or drugs as part of coercively controlling domestic abuse.

      We are seeking input from people who are over the age of 18 who have experienced coercive control from an intimate partner or ex-partner (e.g. husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, civil partner) whether currently or in the past. We recognise that coercive control and abuse can also be perpetrated by family members and carers, but this particular survey is only looking at experiences of such abuse from an intimate partner or ex-partner.

      We are seeking information specifically on experiences of abuse and coercive control where a perpetrator has included the use or misuse of prescribed medicines and treatment (including denying access to or enforcing vaccinations and birth control methods) and other drugs (including illegal drugs) as part of their abuse.

      If you would like to take part in the survey, please take a look here

      The survey will be open until 19th September

      Thank you for your continued support

      Best wishes

        I wish this post included alcohol as a manipulation cos that’s been a bane of my life till now , like oh let’s play a drinking game ( your answers weren’t good enough so you have to drink) or let’s go out for one last night out , I know we’re over , then the plying of way to much alcohol and here we go we’re back at their house getting taken advantage of and being told in the morning we are back together why are you trying to leave then being accused of playing mind games, or full on someone having sex with you when your too drunk to consent then that person making out to everyone that your so up for it ( leaving out you we’re inebriated and they were straight sober) I’ve also been around people that go out with the intent of going to clubs to sleep with girls and never using protection , I’ve also been given Cocain at a house party while drunk and a small white pill that knocked me out for a while at another house party , I was with friends that night so nothing happened to me , but I think this thread should include alcohol too, I don’t drink drink much anymore to be careful and if I do it’s only with people I trust , thank you for listening and taking the time to read my post 💛💜💛💜
