This report was kindly produced by Dr Amanda Holt, summarising the research findings on child to parent abuse, covering its prevalence, contexts, and impacts. Notably, child to parent abuse can cause a wide range of harms, to the parent/carer, to the young person, and to the wider family and community. There are clear implications for youth justice practice in relation to initial identification and screening – with disclosure being difficult for many parents/carers, and differing structural and familial contexts – and the need for tailored and multi-agency responses. Within our inspections, we will continue to consider whether high-quality, well-focused, personalised and coordinated services are in place which support both the safety of the child and the safety of other people.
