A Rapid review by Alcohol Change UK examining the role of alcohol in contributing to intimate partner violence (IPV) has just been published. You can access the review here.
The review was written by Ms Lisa Jones, Ms Hannah Grey, Ms Nadia Butler, Dr Zara Quigg and Professor Harry Sumnall, (Liverpool John Moores University), and Dr Gail Gilchrist, (King’s College London). It highlights the need for interventions to address IPV perpetration by men accessing treatment for alcohol use. This is the focus of a NIHR funded research programme, ADVANCE led by Gail Gilchrist, one of co-authors.
