It’s not only partners who suffer domestic violence. Young people can be abusive and violent to parents too.
Yuva works with young people age 11-18 (up to 25 for young people with additional needs) who have been abusive to their parents/carers and in their close relationships. We help young people look at their abusive behaviour and find safe, non abusive alternatives.
If your son or daughter is aged between 11 and 18, and you’re concerned about their behaviour towards you, you can contact Yuva for support. We can meet you to talk about what is happening and what you may be able to do.
A referral form is available here with guidance for those wishing to refer for intimate partner violence and also for adolescent to parent violence. Yuva accepts self referrals as well as those from professionals.
Information for professionals can be found here.
