"Personal Financial Strategies for the Loved Ones of Problem Gamblers"
National Endowment for Financial Education

Problem gambling affects thousands of Americans and their loved ones. Like other addictions, the compulsion to gamble can take top priority in the gambler's life, causing devastating emotional and financial upheavals. Often, the family is just as affected by the addiction as the gambler. This booklet provides family members with general financial information and suggests ways to deal with the personal and financial issues that occur when there is a gambling problem in the family.
 


 

"In the Shadow of Chance – the Pathological Gambler"
Dr. Julian Taber, Ph.D.

This book is described by the author as a “journey through the mind of the pathological gambler”. Written as much for the client, as for the clinician, Dr. Taber draws on real case studies to create a ‘fictionalized’ story of problem gambling and recovery. Dr. Taber describes the distortions of normal thought, the personal agony, and the social destruction caused by an addiction to gambling action. In later chapters he reviews some major obstacles to recovery, and the steps necessary to radically alter the thinking and behavior of the gambler in order to achieve a normal life.
