Monash University this month released a report examining young Victorians’ experiences of identity abuse in the context of family violence, finding that it often occurs alongside other forms of abuse. The study is one of two pieces of work on which Family Safety Victoria engaged Monash University, as part of the Victorian Government’s Child and Young Person-focused MARAM practice guidance project.

The report reveals young people’s self-reported experiences of gender-identity and LGBTIQ+ identity abuse in family violence settings, including the significant social, emotional, educational, physical and cultural impacts of family violence.
