Adolescent Violence in the Home

The ongoing work of family violence reforms in Victoria has highlighted gaps in knowledge about adolescents who use violence in the home and the need for specialist expert advice to enable service providers, professionals, parents and carers to more effectively respond to and support these young people.  

The Centre has a strong interest in identifying, translating and embedding the best available research and practice expertise to build Victoria’s evidence base in relation to adolescents using violence in the home (AVITH).  

Background

Family Safety Victoria initially contracted the Centre in 2019 to undertake a project that contributes to the emerging evidence base of what works for adolescents who use violence in the home. The aim of this project – ‘Building the Evidence’ – was to better understand the nature of AVITH and the approaches that work, including earlier intervention.
