|Abstract:||It is the purpose of this paper to bring attention to problem gambling and the impact it has on many adult Canadian gamblers and their families. An attempt is made to provide a comprehensive picture of the complex situation faced by the gambler and the family when gambling becomes a problem. Family-based interventions are described in an effort to aid social workers who work with the gambler's family. Using a systems-based perspective, recommendations derived from the literature review are presented as a guide to facilitate a positive intervention process and a successful outcome. This research report was submitted to The School of Social Work, Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, McGill University for The Master's Degree in Social Work.|
