Adolescent Violence in the Home examines a form of violence that has a profound impact on families but is often overlooked and frequently misunderstood: teen aggression and violence toward members of their family—especially parents. Violence in adolescents is often seen as the result of a mental-health diagnosis, delinquency, or as a response to dysfunctional parenting, and though understanding a youth’s mental-health status or a parenting style can be helpful, complete focus on either is misplaced. Adolescent Violence in the Home uses a restorative framework, developed by the authors and in use in court systems and organizations around the world, to situate violent behaviors in the context of power and the intergenerational cycle of violence. Readers will come away from this book with a profound understanding of the social and individual factors that lead youth to use violence and how adolescent violence affects parents, and they’ll also learn about a variety of interventions that specifically address teen violence against parents.

Breaking the Cycle is an eight week education and therapeutic group work program in Victoria for parents of adolescents who are violent in the home. The program was developed for Anglicare Victoria in 1997 in response to increasing numbers of referrals from parents whose adolescent sons and daughters were behaving violently or abusively within the family home. It aims to improve parenting approaches, reduce adolescent-to-parent violence, and improve the parent-adolescent relationship. The program is delivered by Meridian Youth and Family Counselling Services, operating from Anglicare Victoria's Box Hill office. This report presents an evaluation of the effectiveness of the program in achieving its aims, based on interviews with program participants and a control group.

Offering a fresh perspective on treatment, this book presents an overarching framework and many specific strategies for working with violent youth and their families. The authors shed light on the complex interplay of individual, family, community, and societal forces that lead some adolescents to hurt others or themselves. Effective ways to address each of these factors in clinical and school settings are discussed and illustrated with evocative case material. The book provides essential guidance on connecting with aggressive teens and their parents and managing difficult situations that are likely to arise. The strengths-based interventions presented are applicable to a broad range of high-risk behaviors, from bullying and assault to substance abuse, self-mutilation, and suicidality.
