The International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors

The International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors

McGill University’s International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors has been attempting to identify and understand the underlying determinants and critical factors related to youth gambling problems and their relationship with other adolescent addictive and high-risk behaviours. The ongoing research efforts conducted by Drs. Derevensky and Gupta, along with their graduate students, have been crucial in helping to identify the determinants placing youth at risk for gambling problems, and in the development of empirically based treatment and prevention programs. Of importance has been the Centre’s role in impacting public health and social policy in an effort to reduce and minimize the harms associated with excessive, problematic gambling.

The Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health

The Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health

The Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health brings together specialists from different areas of research to investigate the implications of physical activity on health and well-being. The Centre’s researchers examine physiological, neuromechanical, or behavioural aspects of physical activity and healthy living, in an attempt to bridge the gap between basic sciences (e.g., cellular physiology) and applied sciences (e.g., clinical exercise physiology) through multidisciplinary research.
