The Respect Young People’s Programme (RYPP) addresses adolescent to parent violence. Originally funded under the Realising Ambition programme to test replication and effectiveness it produced statistically significant improvement in young people’s mental wellbeing and behaviour

Analysis of these outcomes indicates a statistically significant improvement in nearly all areas, including of emotional wellbeing, conduct, pro-social behaviour, and overall mental health – with only hyperactivity and peer relationships showing no change according to children’s self report, but positive change according to parent-report. Of particular note is the overall improvement in mental health and behaviour of young people, which two thirds of parents reported as being improved by the end of the programme. Additionally, parent reported scores within the “high need” threshold range of mental health and conduct problems reduced by 23% and 27% respectively, which is particularly positive given the focus of the programme on addressing children’s violence against their parents”.
