In the News
The Deseret News (national edition) recently interviewed the Adler School’s Mark Bilkey, Psy.D., for expert insight on senior citizens affected by gambling, in wake of a 2013 American Gaming Commission report and a recent Psychology Today article.
Dr. Bilkey is Assistant Professor in Counseling Education and Counseling at the Adler School, with expertise in aging. While working as a gerontologist in Palm Springs, California, he began seeing more older adults affected by compulsive gamblig problems. He discusses some of his concerns in the story, and why "it is a perfect set-up for difficulty--especially if you have difficulties [as a senior]."
