Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest

The Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest brings together addiction and mental health service providers, researchers and subject matter experts in the fields of gambling, technology/Internet use and video gaming to collaborate and share knowledge on emerging trends and clinical best practices.

The JGI Fall 2021 Issue is now available -  all issues are open access. This quarterly issue features work by Canadian researchers, including Michael Wohl and Nassim Tabri, as well as international scholars, Sally Gainsbury, Bowden-Jones, and others. Original research by a Toronto-based team examined the high prevalence of problem gambling - but low rate of treatment participation - among people experiencing poverty and homelessness and showed that social, financial, housing, and health challenges shape their self-management strategies and experiences. Researchers at the University of Sydney investigated the relationship between financial wellbeing and changes in gambling behaviour among 764 Australian past-year gamblers during the COVID-19 shutdown, while clinical work out of the UK found of a significantly higher proportion of treatment seeking pathological gamblers demonstrate probable alcohol dependence compared to the general population. Delfabbro and colleagues provide a comprehensive framework to assist regulators, researchers and industry personnel appreciate the potential benefits of harnessing stakeholder engagement and collaboration to yield more evidence-formed policy debates and regulation to reduce gambling harm. The issue can be accessed at the Journal of Gambling Issues website:
