Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this first book to address the issue of underage gambling, Mark Griffiths has carried out extensive research into why some adolescents get hooked on gambling, how they gamble and what can be done about it.

Synopsis:

Although in theory gambling is against the law for children, there is one form of gambling that young people do have access to: slot machines. "Adolescent Gambling" addresses the issue of underage gambling and raises the crucial issue of who is to blame. Is it something about the personality of the young person or is it the addictive nature of gambling itself? Mark Griffiths provides an overview of adolescent gambling worldwide in addition to individual case studies, treatment approaches and an insight into how the gaming industry induces young people to gamble. Anyone involved with the lives of young people will want to read this book, especially social workers, teachers, youth leaders, probation officers and clinical psychologists.
