Family conflict remains a significant factor in young people becoming homeless, a result of a range of related complex influences, forces and behaviours. Research identifies both in Australia and internationally, that family conflict and breakdown is a major element of young people becoming homeless (Rosenthal, et al, 2006; Johnson, et al, 2008; Chamberlain and Mackenzie, 1998). However, understandings of how family conflict influences youth homelessness is limited. What family conflict involves, particularly from the perspective of young people, is under-researched and conceptualised. In addition, there are limited insights from research into family conflict relating to youth homelessness on which to formulate programs and interventions with families and young people.
