Neapolis researching effects of gambling

Neapolis University has recently completed research into the effects of gambling on young people.
The research programme was implemented with the support of the Cyprus Youth Organisation and the national betting authority.
The programme aims to address misconceptions about gambling, attitudes to gambling, beliefs about the cost-effectiveness of gambling and prejudices.
The results showed that a gambling problem prevention programme based on modifying misguided beliefs and prejudices could be a promising intervention.
Neapolis University will inform various bodies about the results of the survey and will organise debates in secondary schools, youth centres and other universities.
Katerina Flora, lecturer in clinical psychology and Angelos Tchinidis and Violetta Christofi, postgraduate students of counseling psychology took part in a special event on March 13 to present the result of the university’s research.
