Child and adolescent to parent violence and abuse (CAPVA) is the most hidden, misunderstood and stigmatised form of family violence. It’s a pattern of aggressive, abusive and violent acts carried out over a prolonged period of time by children, to their parents.
Front line practitioners report that while CAPVA continues to be underreported, it is rapidly being recognised as a widespread form of domestic abuse impacting families.
