The Inventory of Gambling Situations (IGS), developed by researchers at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, is a tool that can assist people with gambling problems and their therapists in treatment planning and/or relapse prevention. Its goal is to determine the risk of excessive gambling in 63 different situations as well as identify a person’s profile of high-risk situations or triggers. The questionnaire takes about 20 minutes and can be done either independently by the person with gambling problems or together with a therapist.
Please note that this does not diagnose or treat problem gambling. It only indicates which situations tend to be problematic. If you are concerned about your scores on any of these scales, please talk to your therapist.
