Mark Twain's comment that "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so" is a useful place to start when thinking about substance misuse and domestic and sexual violence. Much has been said in Scotland, by public officials and others, about the links between substance misuse and violence. Phrases such as "alcohol-fuelled violence" and "drug-related violence" abound in the policy and practice worlds. What do we know about the relationship (if any) between substance use and violence? How do we interpret the litany of data that links domestic abuse and alcohol misuse? What is good practice in light of the literature?
The session will offer a sample of conclusions from the literature and support what will undoubtedly be a lively discussion about the problems and promise of addressing the co-occurrence of domestic abuse and substance misuse. We will conclude with an examination of the implications of myth-based policy and practice and identify some relevant responses in our spheres of activity.
