Young people and gambling promotion on social media
Dr Hannah Pitt from Deakin University will share findings from her project relating to young people and gambling promotion on social media. This study comprised two components: an interpretivist content analysis of sports betting brands posts on social media and an online panel survey with Australians aged 16-24 years, which explored their awareness and receptivity to sports betting advertising strategies on social media.
Addressing gambling harm to affected others
This online presentation will describe the findings of a comprehensive scoping review of contemporary literature relating to addressing gambling harm to adult affected others from their own perspective. Specifically, it will cover findings relating to prevalence, sociodemographic profiles, harm experienced, coping strategies employed, assessment of affected others, and interventions for affected others. Findings from this review have important implications for governments, industry, researchers, and service providers in their efforts to protect affected others from gambling-related harm.
