Discovery Agenda Now Published

At Discovery 2015, we’re digging even deeper with an agenda that challenges us to examine the tensions between persuasion, prohibition and personal change—how do we strike the right balance?

In this jam-packed agenda, you’ll find sessions that ask:

  • When does “nudging” work, and when are bans the answer?
  • How much family involvement is appropriate?
  • Should reinstatement after self-exclusion come with any special conditions?

This study, published in the January issue of the Journal of Medical Internet Research, compared problem Internet and land-based gambler characteristics and their uptake of different types and modes of help.

The two groups had similarly low use of online help but problem land-based gamblers showed higher uptake of other forms of help than problem Internet gamblers.
