Raising The Bar: Preventing Aggression In And A...

As well as appraising previous interventions, Graham andHomel's book also seeks to identify and develop interventional modelsthat achieve and sustain safer drinking environments. However, it is clearfrom this review of research that the task of establishing which factors actas indicators of barroom violence is complex, with empirical studies oftenproducing contradictory findings. The ability to recognise key elements ofeffective prevention programs is undoubtedly essential if system wide goodpractice is to be implemented and maintained. Yet maybe most pertinently, theauthors highlight that licensed establishments, their managers, staff andother stakeholders can be as influential as policy initiatives in reducingaggression and violence. The responsibilisation of the alcohol industry toreduce and prevent violent behaviour, both within and beyond the boundariesof their premises, is surely essential if safer night-time environments areto be achieved.
