dc.description.abstract This project provides a comprehensive overview of the research literature on problem gambling in adults and includes a detailed mindfulness-based psychoeducational group manual for problem gambling, complete with an extensive group counselling consent form, assessment and screening protocols, 10 user-friendly lesson plans, templates for a marketing poster and session notes, ample client handouts, and facilitator notes. The literature review commences with the definition of problem gambling and continues with a discussion regarding the maintenance, prevalence, psychosocial costs, and consequences of problem gambling. The literature review concludes highlighting the definition of mindfulness, its effectiveness, the relevance and effectiveness of mindfulness-based therapy for problem gambling, and the effectiveness of group therapy for problem gambling. The project devotes substantial consideration to the treatment of problem gambling using mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. One of the strengths of this project is it addressed the lack of resources in rural areas for problem gamblers. The group program manual, entitled Freedom from the Gambling Fog, is designed to be used by counsellors who do not have the time or skill set to research or design a comprehensive group treatment plan en_US
