Lifetime problem gambling rates are highest in college, followed by adolescents. This evidence-based gambling prevention curriculum has shown significant and sustained changes among young people in their attitude toward gambling. In six sessions covered over a two to three week time period, Stacked Deck
uses math, decision-making, and problem-solving skills to prevent the onset of gambling issues in youth.
"Stacked Deck is an extraordinary effort by Drs. Williams and Wood to move the field of preventing problem gambling into the arena of evidenced-based science. This product represents a most vital resource that should be a part of a school's health promotion curriculum. The program allows teachers to educate students about the various facets of gambling, including its role in today's entertainment culture, how the principles of chance are important when playing these games, and how to be alert to the signs of problem gambling. The product has numerous user-friendly features and strives to meet several national academic standards (life skills, thinking and reasoning and mathematic standards). The tone of the material is educational and balanced. I trust that teachers and students will find Stacked Deck to be engaging, relevant and fun."
