Ending Violence Against Native Women: An Overview of Shelter and Advocacy Program Development Supporting Native Womens Sovereignty

Publisher(s):
Amnesty Internationals publication, ÐReport of TortureÓ, includes Bidermans Chart of Coercion which describes techniques used to torture and brainwash prisoners of war: isolation, monopolization of perception, induced debility and exhaustion, threats, occasional indulgences, demonstrating omnipotence, degradation, and enforcing trivial demands. These are some of the same tactics batterers utilize to maintain control over their partners. They are also tactics used in the colonization of Native People.
