The Finnish Blue Ribbon is developing an easy access information and support service, “Tilt”, as part of the capital region’s Gambling Clinic. The Finnish Blue Ribbon participates continuously in the development of various gambling risk education programs, also arranging its own training sessions in relation to this theme.
The Finnish Blue Ribbon’s research work
The purpose of our research operations is to produce scientific, diversified and applicable information regarding Christian substance abuse work. These research operations produce and publish regular questionnaire-based research reports concerning substance abuse work done under the auspices of the Finnish Blue Ribbon’s member organizations.
Questionnaires which we have developed are used in regular information gathering, with new methods of gathering data being developed as needed. Within the framework of this research operation we are also able to carry out more specific research project focused on particular themes. In addition, the Finnish Blue Ribbon’s research branch participates in research networks relevant to our field, orienting the studies taking place there in directions which are significant in terms of Christian substance abuse work.
