We are honored once again to welcome Laura Richards, world renowned and award-winning Criminal Behavioral Analyst, formerly of New Scotland Yard. Every week Laura profiles behaviors and identifies the red flags to prevent murders in slow motion on her groundbreaking podcast: Crime Analyst.

Laura Richards and Mandy Matney discuss the prevalence and devastating consequences of coercive control in domestic abuse cases, emphasizing the need for legal changes and societal challenges to traditional gender roles. They’ll also take a deeper dive into the the Mica Francis case through the prism of Coercive Control. Learn more about Laura’s research and additional resources at thelaurarichards.com or purchase her book Policing Domestic Violence on Amazon.

This episode also stresses the importance of education and awareness, as well as the predictability and preventability of domestic violence murders. Plus the importance of active listening and identifying red flags in relationships, such as devaluation, love bombing, and controlling behaviors. And! We reserved a special conversation just for Premium Members about certain traditions and how they play a role in controlling behavior.

Stay tuned for an upcoming Crime Analyst Episode with the other half of this conversation…
