ADVANCE Dissemination Event
As part of a programme of research funded by the National Institute for Health Research, a team of researchers (from the University of Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester and York)
As part of a programme of research funded by the National Institute for Health Research, a team of researchers (from the University of Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester and York) led by Gail Gilchrist, King’s College London, developed and tested a 14-week group intervention, the ADVANCE intervention, to reduce abusive behaviour towards a female partner by men in substance use treatment.
Despite the higher prevalence of abuse among this group, men who use substances are rarely referred to perpetrator programmes and when they are they often drop out early. Our research has highlighted the complex relationship between substance use and abusive behaviour including intoxication, withdrawal and craving, and financial abuse. Delivering targeted integrated perpetrator programmes to men in substance use treatment will increase their reach, promote positive relationships and improve the wellbeing of survivors.
During the pandemic, they adapted and tested the ADVANCE group intervention for digital delivery (ADVANCE-D) over 32 sessions which includes video group sessions, online practice sessions with a digital coach and individual coaching sessions with a group facilitator. The ADVANCE intervention also provides parallel support for current or ex female partners.
