dc.description.abstractReply by the current author to the comments made by Russil Durrant (see record 2011-17497-014) on the original article (see record 2011-17497-013). As with any scientific model, a major issue is its validity; that is, how adequately does it account for empirical observations? One other issue is the model’s usefulness; in this case, how helpful is the model in directing efforts to reduce alcohol-related aggression and violence? First, we need to prevent problems arising. We know that multiple factors contribute to explaining aggression, whether alcohol related or not. Second, we need to create environments in which young people can socialize safely. Third, there is a need to develop individual treatments for alcohol-related aggression that address dynamic risk factors that have personal explanatory value. Fourth, interventions for women need to be developed. Finally, as Durrant points out, the relationships between antisocial traits, anxiety, alcohol, and aggression may differ according to the type of perpetrator-victim dyad. I hope that my account of the role of anxiety in alcohol-related violence, augmented by Durrant's evidence, will be of use in developing effective prevention and intervention approaches.
