Respect Network Events.

Respect runs a programme of events for frontline workers, service managers, commissioners, funders, policy workers and researchers. Our events are practical and accessible, underpinning our three core strands of work: perpetrators of domestic violence, male victims of domestic violence and young people’s violence in close relationship; and support our ethos of high quality and safe service provision.

Respect Young People’s Services National Event

26 September @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

£120 - £156

Respect’s Young People’s Services Event focuses on pioneering work with young people who use violence, abuse and challenging behaviour. The event will engage you in new thinking and approaches to complement your work.
The event aims to bring together experts, practitioners, parents and commissioners working to respond to young people who are often vulnerable and pose risk to others in an informal, participative event.


  • Dame Vera Baird DBE QC – Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner and Patron of Respect
    Dame Baird will be chairing this event. She will also be presenting on the joint piece of work Respect and Northumbria are carrying out in 6 local authorities in the North East addressing adolescent to parent violence (APV). This project involves training up specialist staff and police to respond to APV – the first in terms of a joined-up project to both cover such a broad geographical area and train right from callout to the end of the intervention.
  • Rosie Creer – Young People’s Services manager, Respond
    Most of us will know that people on the autistic spectrum and ADHD are likely to have different ‘sore points’ or triggers than others. What we struggle with more is how to help parents to manage their challenging behaviours and how might these differ from managing similar aggression in neuro-typical teens. Rosie Creer will speak to this to help us think about how to address this.
  • Dr Hannah Bows – Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Teesside University
    Dr Hannah Bows will be speaking to where parricide meets eldercide: an analysis of child to parent/grandparent homicides in the UK.


  • Carole Williams & Cathy Press – Who’s In Charge
    Who’s in Charge? is a 9 week child to parent violence (CPV) programme aimed at parents whose children are being abusive or violent toward them or who appear out of parental control.  The structure of the programme consists of 8 two and a half hour sessions with a two-month follow up. The trainers will go through some of the tools and techniques used in the programme to address this issue.
  • Jane Griffiths – Break 4 Change
    Break 4 change is a 10 week group programme supporting parents/carers and young people in building healthy relationships. ‘Child to parent abuse is any behaviour used by a young person to control, dominate, or coerce parents. It is intended to threaten and intimidate and puts the family at risk’. B4C ©
    This interactive workshop will look at the programme and how it is implemented and explore tools and strategies used when working with families impacted by child to parent abuse.
