Action plan: Problem gambling

Mark Griffiths gives his practical recommendations based on psychological theory and research.
Although gambling is clearly of psychological interest and is a topic that The Psychologist has examined (see Orford, 2002), traditionally it has not been viewed as a public health matter (see Griffiths, 1996, and Korn, 2000, for exceptions). Research into the health, social and economic impacts of gambling are still at an early stage.
