Areas of Research
Dr. Graham’s main research areas include alcohol and violence, including both barroom and intimate partner violence, gender, alcohol and health along with their measurement and evaluation to identify the most successful methods for prevention and intervention. Her Safer Bars program has received international recognition and has been implemented in a number of countries. Recognizing that bars and clubs are high-risk locations for violence and aggression, Dr. Graham and her team of researchers developed the program over a five-year period, in consultation with police, lawyers, community health professionals, civic leaders and liquor licensing officials, as well as bar owners and staff from over 20 licensed premises in towns and cities across Ontario.
