Portrait of the isolation and sacrifice associated with gambling debt.

Jennifer Robinson, doctoral student in the School of Education, will speak about Community, Gambling Harms and Seeking Support: New Approaches and Discoveries on Wednesday, April 26 from 6pm to 7.30pm at the Wheeler Building lecture theatre CRV139. 

Jennifer will explore the nature of GRH and drawing on her own research she will consider the phenomena of this type of harm for those directly and indirectly impacted, exploring the implications for professionals working in treatment, recovery spaces and beyond. 

She will be joined by professionals working to support those affected by GRH who will provide an insight into the challenges and opportunities available for those working in health, housing, education, law and human resources to better understand the socio-economic impact of GRH within their communities. 

It is part of a series of free talks at the University in 2023 with researchers in music, languages, cultures and history sharing their insights. All the talks take place from 6pm, in the Wheeler building. 

Professor Tim Grady, Director of the Culture and Society Research Knowledge Exchange Institute (RKEI) said: “"We've had a fantastic first year of talks. Jennifer's important reflections on gambling harm will add another dimension to what has already been a highly engaging series." 

With almost 200 members across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the new RKEI aims to strengthen collaborations, boost academic research and increase engagement.
