This is the first academic book to focus on adolescent-to-parent abuse. It discusses what we know about parents’ experiences of this type of abuse and critically examines how it has been explained from psychological, sociological, and sociocultural perspectives. It also outlines how policy makers and practitioners can usefully respond to the problem. Written in an accessible style, Adolescent-to-Parent Abuse is an essential tool for academics, policy makers, and professionals with an interest in domestic violence and child protection.
