Young Australians and domestic violence



In 1998 and 1999 an investigation into young people's experience of, and attitudes towards, domestic violence was undertaken. This brief overview summarises some of the findings of young people's experiences in their own relationships, their experience of witnessing adult domestic violence and their attitudes towards violence. The implications of the findings for understanding young people's experience of domestic violence and prevention are briefly highlighted.
