Abstract [en]

Pathological gambling is a public health problem. Two percent of the Swedish general population has an ongoing gambling problem. Although pathological gambling is associated with depression, anxiety and low quality of life, few sufferers seek treatment. Barriers to accessing expert assistance include shortage of skilled therapists, long waiting lists, cost and sometimes even shame. A major challenge therefore, is to increase the accessibility and affordability of evidence-based psychological treatments. Printed self-help manuals have been developed to assist people with mental health problems who are unwilling or unable to access professional assistance, although there has been little evaluation of their efficacy. A modern alternative to printed self-help manuals is computers. In an attempt to provide a cost-effective treatment for problem and pathological gambling, a randomized controlled trial was conducted. Thirty participants were randomized to either a waiting list or an 8-week internet-based treatment program with minimal therapist contact via e-mail. Each participant also had a weekly 10-minute telephone conversation with a therapist. The web-based treatment program will be presented as well as the preliminary results from the study.
