Intervention for College Student Gambling

Led by Dr. Clayton Neighbors, a team developed an online intervention specifically for college students using personalized normative feedback (PNF). This intervention aimed to correct misperceptions by showing students that their gambling behavior was atypical compared to actual norms. The study demonstrated a reduction in gambling behaviors among participants.
