Economic Abuse, it’s policy and practice implications

Economic Abuse, it’s policy and practice implications

Dr Nicola Sharp-Jeffs presents a webinar, considering the evidence, policy and practice implications around economic abuse, recorded in March 2022.

In 2022, The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations hosted two webinars as part of the Women and Girls Initiative Learning and Impact Services.

The first webinar on ‘Economic Abuse, it’s policy and practice implications’ took place on 30 March 2022 and was led by Dr Nicola Sharp-Jeffs OBE, Founder and CEO of Surviving Economic Abuse. Dr Sharp-Jeffs talked about the relatively unknown and misunderstood issue of Economic Abuse which is much broader than ‘Financial Abuse’. In ‘Economic Abuse, its policy and practice implications,’ Dr Sharp-Jeffs spoke about the definition of economic abuse within the Westminster Government’s Domestic Abuse Act (2021), building an understanding of the ‘technology’ or variety of means via which economic abuse is perpetrated, including constructs and targets of control. The webinar shares examples and insights on Economic Abuse, behaviours and the long-lasting impact on victims and survivors.

The webinar recordings are some of the final public outputs from the WGI Learning and Impact Services and are available alongside previous reports, briefings and the WGI animation film “Where she was to where she is now: Celebrating the Women and Girls Initiative” made by Leeds Animation Workshop with WGI projects. These resources will continue to be available as part of the legacy from the WGI.
