About the Course:

Arising from a larger study into workplace influences on gambling among employees who work in hotels, clubs, and casinos in Queensland, Australia, this paper presents six case studies of staff with gambling problems. All six developed their gambling problems while working in gaming venues. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and analysed thematically to reveal several ways in which the work environment in gaming venues influences the gambling behaviour of these staff. An understanding of these workplace influences on problem gambling can inform identification of appropriate interventions.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, How Working in a Gaming Venue Can Lead to Problem Gambling: The Experiences of Six Gaming Venue Staff created by Nerilee Hing and Helen Breen
