  • summary

    : Despite the growing popularity of the harm reduction/harm minimization approach for adolescent alcohol and substance abuse, a harm reduction approach for the prevention of youth gambling problems has only recently been explored. A universal, selective, and indicative prevention framework used in harm reduction health paradigms for adolescent substance and alcohol abuse is applied to youth gambling problems. A risk-protective factor model is used as a conceptual basis for designing a harm reduction prevention program. This framework points to the developmental appropriateness of the harm reduction approach for youth with gambling problems.
