Abstract

Examines the nature of compulsive gamblers from the point of view of counselling. Considers the stages in becoming a gambler, when gambling becomes a problem, how gamblers become addicted, and what can be done to help gamblers and their families, including counselling. Surmises that the challenge for counselling is to instil a positive attitude, by balancing tough recommendations with genuine support.
