Living with a father who uses violence:  Young People’s voices

cover

Eight short digital stories were created by young people living with fathers who use violence.  As part of Katie Lamb’s PhD within the Fathering Challenges Research Project, these stories supported young people to be heard and to tell fathers how their violence affects their children.

The young people made these stories with the intention that they be used by programs and services working with men who use violence.

Three of the young people gave permission for their stories to be shared over the internet for easy access by programs.  These three stories can be viewed through this link.
