Next week, the NCRG will hold its second free webinar of 2014. Titled “Preventing Disordered Gambling among College Students,” this March 19 webinar (2 – 3:30 p.m. ET) will feature Dr. Clayton Neighbors, professor and director of the social psychology program in the department of psychology at the University of Houston, who will discuss a new resource that was developed to help reduce problem gambling by showing students their misperceptions of student gambling behavior.
Approximately 75 percent of college students in the U.S. gambled in the past year and 6 percent develop a gambling problem. Despite these research findings, there was no screening/brief interventions tailored for this population—until now.
