Summary Through an ongoing research programme, the Statewide Gambling Therapy Service (SGTS) in South Australia has been systematically developing approaches to treatment and relapse prevention in order to include a wider range of clients in the treatment programme, help them recover from their gambling problems and support them to avoid relapse to problematic gambling post treatment.In a recent randomised controlled trial exploring the efficacy of cognitive versus behavioural therapy in the treatment of problematic gambling disorders in SGTS, no significant differences were found between clinical outcomes of the two treatment modalities. Both purely cognitive and purely bahavioural approaches to therapy had similar outcomes in terms of improvements in measures of health and wellbeing (Work and Social Adjustment Scale: WSAS), general depressioni (Kessler 10: K10) and problematic gambling (Victorian Gambling Screen: VGS). Further studies are planned to test more precisely whether both approaches are indeed equivalent in terms of outcomes achieved for clients. In the mean time, the fact that behavioural therapy (BT) tends to required less treatment sessions to achieve the same outcomes as cognitive therapy (CT) suggests that working to retaining clients in treatment using BT may be a more effective and parsimonious treatment option for people with gambling disorders . This current paper provides an overview of SGTS client engagement and management strategies following the completion of our recent RCT.
