Programme ADVANCE (Advancing theory and treatment approaches for males in substance use treatment who perpetrate intimate partner violence) will generate evidence to develop and test the efficacy of an integrated intervention to reduce intimate partner violence by men attending substance use treatment and increase safety for their ex/current-partners and children.

Kings College London Research Team

ADVANCE is being led by Dr Gail Gilchrist, Senior Lecturer at King’s College London (KCL).  At KCL, the first phase of the research is being undertaken by Dr Polly Radcliffe (Research Fellow), Professor Sir John Strang (Head of Addictions Department), Fay Dennis (Research Assistant) and Juliet Henderson (Project Manager) (see photo).
