Emotion regulation, eating pathology, and gambling in men.


We are recruiting men who gamble, binge eat, or both to participate in a longitudinal, online study. We hope to learn more about the commonalities and differences between addictive and eating behaviours. Participants will be asked to complete four surveys over six months. Participants who complete the first and 6-month survey will receive a $10 Amazon.ca gift card each time for their participation.

Participants will be asked to
1. Complete a screening interview to determine eligibility over the phone (approximately 10 -20 minutes).
2. If eligible, participants will complete a 30-60 minute online survey at baseline and six-months.
3. Eligible participants will also be asked to complete two 5-minute online surveys at two and four months.

All participation is confidential.
