Experiences of individuals who use online gambling forums
AboutDr Stephanie Merkouris is a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Deakin University. A researcher in the gambling field for over 12 years, her main research interests relate to how advances in technology can be used for assessment, intervention, and dissemination purposes. She is currently the recipient of a New South Wales Postdoctoral Research Fellowship focusing on the development and evaluation of an online intervention for individuals impacted by someone else’s gambling.
This presentation will focus on the way the advances in technology have allowed unprecedented access to large textual datasets that cannot feasibly be extracted and analysed using traditional qualitative approaches. She adopts an innovative approach to analysing patterns in written text, to explore the experiences and perceptions of gambling forums users, across Australia, the UK and the US.
