Fellowship focus: Reducing assaults in Night-time Entertainment Districts through violence prevention and psychological treatments for people with drug and alcohol disorders.  


A specialist in violence prevention in Night-time Entertainment Districts (NEDs), Professor Devilly will work with Dr Patton’s psychological interventions group to set up a collaborative research team focused on violence prevention and psychological treatment. Adapting Professor Devilly’s approach to a UK context, the team will liaise with the police, emergency services and support agencies with the ultimate aim of reducing assaults in NEDs and developing interventions for people who preload with drugs and alcohol.
