What is it?

The following programme works with young people, aged 12-21, who need help managing conflict in their relationship with their parents or other primary caregivers

Why is it needed?

These sessions will help young people & their caregivers identify another way to handle problems and conflict with people close to them, rather than resorting to abusive or violent behaviour.  Young people and parents will be encouraged to consider how their own exposure to abuse or violence may be linked to their behaviour and how to overcome this in the future.
