Below are some links to resources and programmes that address Adolescent to Parent Violence:
The Home Office produced guidance
on this subject in 2015. This sets out how children’s services and other agencies should respond and makes it clear that it is a whole family issue. The document also provides examples of different therapeutic approaches which are used nationally and internationally and contact details for local services.
Holes in the Wall
is a useful blog which collates research and information about this issue and has links to programmes such as ‘Who’s in Charge? and ‘Non-Violent Resistance’ on their website.
Specialist services that can help include:
- developed by the Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP)
