Summary In the field of research into the treatment of problem gambling, researchers have been attempting to identify the treatment pathways that are effective in remediating gambling disorder among people seeking help. In spite of these efforts, research results remain equivocal in relation to which components of the various treatment options are effective, echoing the familiar claim that all psychotherapy treatments are effective, the Dodo Bird Conjecture.This recent tendency towards the revival of the Dodo Bird Conjecture in the field of gambling research is due to factors ranging from a continuing lack of clarity about the effective components of treatments, subjective therapist effects and the lack of validated repeated measures of outcome to assess changes in self-reported data on gambling urge: anxiety, depression and changes in the 'gambling disorder' diagnosis over time.
