As governments have become increasingly dependent on revenues from gaming, the number of people becoming problem gamblers has grown. This series is designed for nonspecialist health providers and family members confronted with problem gamblers. After introducing the three Cs of compulsion--loss of Control and Continued use despite Consequences, McGowan (a clinical psychologist) and Howatt (an addiction counselor) discuss risk factors, signs, symptoms, resources, treatment planning, and relapse prevention. They point out that addiction professionals are at high risk for gambling problems. Chapters include case studies, handouts for clients, quizzes, and recommended reading.
