Adolescent to Parent Abuse‘Any behaviour used by a young person to control, dominate or coerce parents. It is intended to threaten and intimidate and puts family safety at risk.’ Break4Change ©

Adolescent to Parent Abuse (APA) is a ‘Pattern of aggressive, abusive and violent behaviours across a prolonged period of time’.  APA ‘creates an environment where parents live in fear of their child and often curtails their own behaviour to avoid conflict’.

 Parents reported their children have:

  • Kicked holes in doors, walls & furniture.
  • Made threats to kill themselves or other family members.
  • Used weapons as a way of getting their own way. 
  • Destroyed property.
  • Physically attacked family members causing injury.

This one-day awareness training will offer the opportunity to globally consider parents/carers/grandparents impacted by violence and abuse from their child. It will offer space to consider the difference between adolescent to parent abuse and ‘normal’ teenage behaviour, discuss case studies and look at strategies used to support families impacted.

Learning outcomes

  • Increased understanding of Adolescent to Parent Abuse
  • Increased understanding of Power and control in APA
  • Impact of Adolescent to Parent Abuse within the family
