Gambling problems can create a lot of stress in families. Children and young people may not know that a parent or caregiver is struggling with gambling, but they feel the impact.

In this episode, we hear from Dr. Toula Kourgiantakis about:

  • how parental gambling problems affect families and children
  • signs that a young person is impacted by a parent's gambling problem
  • how to support young people and families in this situation
  • how to include children and families in the recovery process
