“A thought-provoking and well-structured summary”

Amanda Holt’s recent ground-breaking book received a very positive review in the April 2013 issue of the British Journal of Social Work. Adolescent to Parent Abuse: Current Understandings in Research, Policy and Practice was published by the Policy Press in December 2012.

Teresa Cleary, Senior Lecturer in Social Work at Anglia Ruskin University, describes the work as “a thought-provoking and well-structured  summary of the largely uncharted territory of adolescent-to-parent abuse”, concluding, “This book offers a well evidenced academic argument as to why adolescent-to-parent abuse should be given more attention by researchers and policy makers like and that parents should be allowed to come forward as ‘victims’ without fear of blame or punitive response.”
