Gambling-related harms can affect families, partners and those closest to the people who are engaging in problem gambling behaviours.
Concerned significant others or "affected others" can also be financially, emotionally, or otherwise impacted by a loved one's problem gambling behaviour.
Greo has recently shared three research summaries exploring some of these harms:
- Gambling-related harms experienced by affected others: A Finnish population survey: http://ow.ly/fFc750K7h0E
- The impact of gambling disorders on families and partners: http://ow.ly/q1Le50K7h0y
- Women’s experiences of gambling-related harm as an affected other: http://ow.ly/CjAs50K7h0B
If you are someone working to support families and affected others, you may also be interested in GGTU's short, self-directed course: Working With Families and Affected Loved Ones which covers this topic in more detail.
