A team at Monash University is conducting new research into Adolescent Family Violence and seeks participants. Although focus groups will only be conducted locally in Victoria, responses to the survey are invited from around the world.
In 2014 ‘family violence’ was declared a national emergency in Australia. Investigating adolescent family violence is a project being conducted by a multidisciplinary team of Monash University researchers from the School of Social Sciences, the Department of General Practice, and the Department of Social Work. It will explore attitudes towards, patterns of, and the impact of AFV. The project builds on, and compliments, work being conducted in the United Kingdom (titled Investigating adolescent violence towards parents). It is part of the new awareness of the harms of family violence and seeks to enhance the safety of women and children.
