Professor Malcolm Battersby explains how Exposure Therapy can be used to help people confront their gambling addiction. Working in a similar way to treating anxiety or fear, Exposure Therapy involves exposing people to gambling through the use of images and sounds to help them overcome the urge to gamble.
