New in the Wiley Series in Forensic Clinical Psychology,Alcohol–Related Violence: Prevention and Treatment presents a comprehensive collection of intervention strategies to reduce alcohol–related aggression and violence. Drawing on contributions from internationally–renowned academics and practitioners, chapters describe evidence–based interventions at a number of levels, including populations, barroom, families, couples, and individuals.

Prevention is examined at a number of levels including policy, policing, and the creation of safer environments. Detailed coverage is provided on specific treatments for offenders in the community and in prison, for intimate partner violence and sexual violence, for dually diagnosed offenders and those with intellectual disabilities, and for violence related to alcohol–impaired driving. Each chapter presents a review of research evidence and implications for practice.

Alcohol–Related Violence: Prevention and Treatment offers invaluable guidance for those studying offending behavior and addiction, policy makers involved in interagency alcohol and violence reduction projects, and health care and criminal justice professionals engaged in the treatment of those at risk of alcohol–related violence.

This can be found in the autobiographies of many reformed characters from the field. The perspectives in this collection do, however, provide progressive insights into a pragmatic way forward for those battling away in their professional lives against the harm involved in alcohol–related violence.   (The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice, 5 June 2014)

This is a useful and instructive book, with all the information laid out in an accessible way. Its practical and versatile nature means it will hit the spot for a diverse range of readers policymakers, health and social–care commissioners, researchers and students of alcohol studies, and practitioners in this field, especially those working with offenders in prison and elsewhere within the criminal justice system.   (DrugLink, 1 July 2013)

The book s key strength is in the breadth of approaches presented, and it represents a strong step towards a more integrated approach to studying and reducing alcohol–related violence."  (Addiction, 4 June 2013)
