‘Parent abuse’ is the most under-researched form of family abuse and the research that exists is characterised by diverse and discrete methodological approaches which have produced somewhat inconsistent findings.

The review concludes by suggesting how research might develop to produce a more coherent and contextual methodology which does justice to the complexities of the topic.
