Problem Gambling in the Asian Community

November 14, 2017 EST @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm



The Asian American community is comprised of diverse cultural groups with roots spanning many countries. Despite this diversity, there are some commonalities in this community including cultural values and attitudes towards gambling. Research has also shown that Asian Americans may be impacted by gambling disproportionally and may be at higher risk for gambling disorders. This workshop will explore the diverse cultural attitudes towards gambling, prevalence of gambling and preference for type of gambling, and specific risk factors. It will discuss prevention programs, intervention opportunities, effective treatment modalities, and cultural factors in working with a client with gambling disorder. Additionally it will explore how assimilation and acculturation affect gambling behavior and cultural attitudes as well as family dynamics.


  • Participants will be able to discuss cultural attitudes and risk factors regarding gambling in the Asian American community.
  • Participants will be able to identify culturally competent prevention, intervention, and treatment programs for Asian American’s struggling with gambling disorder
  • Participants will be able to discuss the impact of assimilation and acculturation on gambling behavior and attitudes towards treatment.
