A hidden form of family violence

Judy Nixon, Professor of Social Governance at Sheffield Hallam University, introduces findings from her recent research in this video from Research in Practice. The overwhelming message is that we need to talk about parent abuse more, in order to raise awareness and bring it eventually to policy makers’ attention.


Update October 2017: It looks like this vimeo may no longer be available to view. I would welcome information about a more up to date link.

One response to “A hidden form of family violence

  1. This is a great summary of the challenges and current position of the teen violence against parents issue that is emerging in the UK. The contributions from researchers and innovative practitioners developing promising pilots in the North of England are, I believe, very significant. Our Awareness Raising Event on September 22nd, in Huddersfield will hopefully make its own contribution to bringing further understanding and professional awareness of the challenge (and importance) of working to address teen violence against parents.
