" ... urgent need to conceptualize and measure coercive control in violent relationships is the growing interest in developing subtypes of intimate partner violence, rather than lumping them together under one common rubric. A rubric that would enable us to make better distinctions could be extremely useful in numerous arenas, including batterer treatment, risk assessment, and safety planning for victims."--Executive summary.
