Young people with disability who use violence at home

February 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Building a framework to prevent and respond to young people with disability who use violence at home

A webinar series exploring different contexts and issues that impact young people using violence in the home, and their families.

Join us as we hear from Dr Georgina Sutherland, lead researcher of this ANROWS-funded project “Building a framework to prevent and respond to young people with disability who use violence at home”.

The aim of this project is to build a better understanding of individual, relationship, community context and sociocultural factors relevant for understanding young people with disability who use violence at home. The project entails a conceptual review of the literature and in-depth qualitative inquiry about the lived experience of young people with disability, their families and key sector stakeholders.

“There are lifelong consequences of decisions made about young people with disability who use violence at home, yet the lack of a common understanding about what drives and contributes to [AVITH] results in responses that can result in further harm for the young person with disability and their family. It is critical to establish an explicit, integrated and comprehensive framework to guide prevention and response.”
