Hi All,
I'm looking for participants to complete this survey for my Masters of Clinical Psychology thesis. It's about problem gambling and the possibility of a new form of therapy for problem gambling. The survey can be completed by gamblers and non-gamblers. I'm looking for a wide range of demographics to ensure the research has a high generalisability hence this advertisement.

It takes much less time than the hour stated in the description (From the data collected so far, it's more around 30-40 minutes). The survey can be completed on your desktop, tablets and smartphones as well to make it easier for all participants.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to PM me or post here.

Thank you for your time!

Project Title: Schema modes in problem gambling compared to a community sample

Project Summary:
You are invited to participate in a study conducted by Patrick Huynh Pham, a Masters of Clinical Psychology student. The research will form the basis for the thesis component of this degree at Western Sydney University, under the Supervision of Dr Evelyn Smith.

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether problem gamblers and their age-matched community hold different or similar schema modes. Schema modes refer to the sets of early maladaptive schemas and maintenance processes which are state dependent and dynamic and are currently active for an individual. They are the target of a psychological intervention called Schema Therapy. Previous studies have shown schema therapy to be effective in similar addictive disorders such as substance abuse.

How is the study being paid for? The study is being sponsored by the School of Social Sciences and Psychology.

What will I be asked to do?
You will be asked to complete four questionnaires, a Socio-Demographics Questionaire, the Problem Gambling Severity Index, the Young Schema Questionnaire- Short Form, and the Schema Mode Inventory.

How much of my time will I need to give?
The study will take approximately 60 minutes.

What benefits will I, and/or the broader community, receive for participating?
