Meet Kate Roberts
Executive Officer, Gambling Impact Society NSW
Drawing on personal experience, Kate Roberts has developed a five step process for
supporting people with a loved one who is experiencing gambling problems with
Professor Jim Orford (above).
The five step
program involves listening, identifying useful information, coping styles,
social networks, service support and referrals.
So far in Australia, Kate
has piloted a two day training program for health professionals in NSW and hopes
the program will be embraced more broadly in the future.
