Boys, childhood domestic abuse and gang involvement

This policy brief which is based on the book Boys, Childhood Domestic Abuse, and Gang Involvement: Violence at Home, Violence On-Road offers radical and important insights into a hidden social problem – the neglect of boys and young men’s relationships to domestic violence and abuse (DVA) in childhood.

Boys have been previously the blind spot in DVA policy and professional practice, neglected due to the perception they are potential perpetrators rather than victims. Nowhere is this more pertinent than in the case of boys and young men who are criminalised and labelled as gang-involved by the time they are in their teenage years.
