|Title:||Gambling Control Self-efficacy as a Mediator of the Effects of Low Emotional Intelligence on Problem Gambling||Contributor(s):||Kaur, I (author); Schutte, N (author) ; Thorsteinsson, EB (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1007/s10899-006-9029-1||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/156||Abstract:||This study investigated whether lower emotional intelligence would be related to less self-efficacy to control gambling and more problem gambling and whether gambling self-efficacy would mediate the relationship between emotional intelligence and problem gambling. A total of 117 participants, including 49 women and 68 men, with an average age of 39.93 (SD = 13.87), completed an emotional intelligence inventory, a gambling control self-efficacy scale, and a measure of problem gambling. Lower emotional intelligence was related to lower gambling self-efficacy and more problem gambling. Gambling control self-efficacy partially mediated the relationship between emotional intelligence and problem gambling.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Gambling Studies, 22(4), p. 405-411||Publisher:||Springer New York LLC||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1050-5350||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 407
