Project Description

This study aims to examine the relationship between problem gambling and family violence in the Partner Organisations and other community-based services (problem gambling, family violence, and family/financial counselling) across Australia and New Zealand. This study aims to determine the prevalence of the co-occurrence of these behaviours, their family impacts and coping, after accounting for problematic alcohol and drug use and psychological symptoms. Partner Organisations will assist in evaluating prevalence through the use of screening questions and assist in the administration of 850 interviewer-administered surveys. These findings will inform the design of effective and efficient interventions and integrated services.
