Despite a rapid increase in the availability of many forms of gambling, there has been little serious study in the literature of the likely effects. This book seeks to fill that gap by reviewing what is known about gambling in Britain and studying work on the nature, prevalence and possible causes of problem gambling. Drawing on the history and recent British studies on the subject, Gambling and Problem Gambling in Britain gives an in-depth theoretical and practical viewpoint of this subject. Areas covered include: * gambling in Britain since Victorian times * expansion of gambling in the late twentieth century * what we now know about problem gambling and its treatment * a consideration of the future of gambling in Britain. This book will be invaluable for professionals, trainees and academics in the areas of counselling, primary care, probation and social work.
