Alcohol use and aggression

Validation of an aggression test battery (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

On the first of January 2017 a new law regarding substance use in violent offenders came into force in the Netherlands. This new law gives the police the authority to obtain an alcohol/drug- test if there is a suspicion of a violent act under the influence of substances. The aim of this new law is to improve the approach towards alcohol and drug induced violence, to reduce violence and to increase the safety in public places and households.
The main goal of this current study was to investigate the validity of a test battery that will be suitable to use in research on threshold values of alcohol in alcohol-induced aggression.
