Who’s Responsible for Responsible Gambling? New Research Findings and Their Implications for Diverse Stakeholder Groups

This presentation will discuss the concept of shared responsibility as applied to the prevention of problem gambling, situating shared responsibility within a larger public health framework. After establishing problem gambling prevention as a responsibility that should be shared among gamblers, operators, and other stakeholders, it will answer three empirical questions: (1) Are beliefs about shared (versus individual-only and external-only) responsibility linked to gambling patterns, and if so how? (2) Do gamblers naturally tend to hold a shared responsibility viewpoint about the prevention of gambling harm? and (3) Does exposure to “responsible gambling” programming encourage a shared responsibility viewpoint? Dr. Gray will address these questions using data from three large-scale cross-sectional surveys. Finally, Dr. Gray will discuss implications for future prevention and intervention efforts.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe research findings regarding gamblers’ perceptions of responsibility for minimizing gambling harm
  • Participants will be able to apply these concepts and findings to the development of innovative and effectiveness prevention/intervention strategies
