Session

Responsible gambling and stakeholder responsibility: Customer model

Most responsible gambling strategies rely on limiting supply (restricted operating times, pre-commitment) or demand (educational campaigns, warning messages). Yet reviews suggest most of these strategies have limited effect. This session will argue that a more effective strategy is to destigmatise help-seeking behaviour by embedding a proactive customer service approach complemented by messages encouraging positive staff-customer interactions.
