The evaluation of a 1-h prevention program for problem gambling

Abstract

Reports on the pre-post controlled experimental evaluation of a problem gambling prevention program aimed at school age youth. The program was very positively received by the students. We found a significant, but small improvement in the students' understanding of random chance; however, we did not find any evidence for changes in gambling behaviour, coping strategies, or attitudes towards gambling.
