This ground-breaking international conference will cover the emerging problem of child to parent violence (CPV) in the family home for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and families. More and more parents are talking about their experiences of abuse at the hands of their children and adolescents. The abuse comes in the form of intimidation, aggression, verbal abuse, financial abuse and physical violence. Practitioners, researchers and policy makers are increasingly faced with the challenges of responding to CPV. This conference will give you the opportunity to explore the subject in a relevant and innovative way, hearing from a range of both international and national speakers.
