why engage concerned significant 0thers of people who gamble into therapy
Why engage Concerned Significant 0thers of people who gamble into therapy?
  • The American Psychological Association considers gambling disorders as “persistent and recurrent maladaptive gambling behaviour that disrupts personal, family, or vocational pursuits” (APA, 1994).
  • Concerned Significant Others (CSOS) of people who gamble are at risk for emotional, psychological and physical problems due to the stress of the situation.
  • Research has shown they can be helpful in motivating problem gamblers to enter treatment and influencing the outcome of treatment. (Makarchuk. K., Hodgins. D).
craft and it s origins
CRAFT and it’s origins
  • It is based on behavioural principles and cognitive-behavioural techniques
  • The earliest version of CRAFT was developed by Robert Myers and tested by Sisson and Azrin in the 1980’s.

It was designed so that therapists could teach family members relevant skills such as:

  • to reward sober behaviour,
  • to communicate in a positive manner
  • to take care of their own needs.
the manual
The Manual
  • Developed by Karen Makarchuk at University of Calgary with Dr. David Hodgins, Adjunct Professor, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
  • Her thesis, “Minimal Treatment Approaches with Concerned Significant Others of Problem Gamblers,” was completed as part of her Master's of Science degree in Medical Science at the University of Calgary.
