About the Course:
Research shows that gambling is a popular activity among youth. The more young people become involved in these activities, the more likely they are to develop irrational thoughts and habits related to gambling. In this study, 273 students helped to test a video designed to (a) increase knowledge about gambling and (b) correct inaccurate knowledge. The effectiveness of the video was evaluated using two experimental conditions and one control condition.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Prevention of Gambling Among Youth: Increasing Knowledge and Modifying Attitudes Toward Gambling created by Marie-Pier Lavoie and Robert Ladouceur
Journal of Gambling Issues
February 2004, Issue 10
