Problem Gambling Recovery Study

PARTICIPANTS NEEDED
A team from the University of Manitoba and the University of Lethbridge are currently conducting a study that is researching women’s experiences of recovery from problem gambling. We are inviting women aged 18 and over to participate in a one hour interview.

PURPOSE
We are interested in learning your perspectives on your definition of problem gambling, the life events or other issues that led to a problem with gambling, and those that supported a period of recovery. We would like to use this information to help service providers identify critical time periods for prevention and intervention, and facilitate greater help-seeking responses in women who identify as having a problem with gambling.

An honorarium will be provided to participants.
