Child to Parent Violence Webinar

Parenting UK, part of the charity, Family Lives, holds regular events to support practitioners, including, recently, a webinar on the subject of Child to Parent Violence, presented by Oliver Standing, Policy and Projects Co-ordinator from  Adfam, and Sara Hassell, a Family Co-ordinator with Family Lives. Oliver was talking about a recent research project. Sara was addressing work she does in a primary school and the tools she uses working to support abused parents. The organisers have made a video of the presentation available to all interested parties (which lasts just under an hour and three quarters), and also links to documents mentioned and to supplementary material.

These include the Adfam/AVA report from the research project: Between a rock and a hard place , the power point slides, (from Oliver Standing and from Sara Hassell) some briefing papers  from Adfam and AVA, (for parents, for practitioners, and for commissioners) and details of Amanda Holt’s new book.

I have also linked here to the Family Lives advice on dealing with a violent teen, from their website. Sara Hassell  mentions the report When Family Life Hurts in her presentation.

It is  intended that this material should be shared with all interested parties.
