Abstract

This paper explores post-change life of problem gambling among Chinese international students. Initial and follow-up interviews were conducted with nine male and three female students between May and September in 2006. The methods of data collection and analysis in this study were informed by a narrative approach. Findings suggest that successful re-rooting is a characteristic of most participants’ post-change experiences. Also, engaging in spirituality, study and work helped boost a sense of success and meaningfulness to life to Chinese international students.
