Overview

Gambling in children and adolescents is a serious and relatively common problem especially among Czech boys. Psychotherapy, family therapy and prevention are more important than pharmacotherapy here. The prevention includes also the restrictions of gambling availability. We present a brief case report and the instructions for the parents of children with a gambling problem.

Key words:
gambling, adolescents, prevention, treatment, family therapy.
