  1. Individuation in a Voyeur Recidivist
    Malkin D. (1991) – AUST.J.OF CLIN. & EXPTL. HYPNOSIS 19(2), 117-131.Abstract:
    Using Wilber’s “Spectrum of Consciousness” as a model, the author describes an eclectic approach in the psychotherapy of a case of voyeurism in a prison setting. Jungian and Gestalt dreamwork, hypnosis, meditation, cognitive, and behavioural methods are utilised as complements. A natural history of the therapeutic alliance is provided session by session…
  2. Personality and Problem Gambling
    Malkin D. & Syme G. (1986) – INT.J.OF ADDICTIONS 21(2), 267-273.Abstract:
    Matched groups of problem and social gamblers were compared in terms of their locus of control and their responses to the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. Contrary to previous studies no significant differences occurred on the locus of control measure. It was hypothesized that problem gamblers would be more extraverted and intuitive than social gamblers. However, none of the four scales on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator showed a significant difference between the groups. These findings and the results of earlier studies are compared and discussed. Earlier studies are difficult to interpret because of inappropriate or inconsistent controls. It is suggested that future personality studies of problem gamblers differentiate between different types of gambling and different types of problem gamblers.
  3. Wagering Preferences
    Malkin D. & Syme G. (1985) – J.ABN.PSYCHOLOGY 94(1), 86-91.Abstract:
    The wagering preferences of 16 male problem gamblers and a matched control group of 16 social gamblers were examined both through a questionnaire and in an experimental context in which the opportunity to gamble was auctioned between 8 pairs of gamblers in each group. Six prize levels ($50 to $1,000) and seven probabilities of winning (.01 to .99) were combined to provide 42 hypothetical bets for both the questionnaire and experimental measures. The results from the experimental auctioning measure showed that there was a tendency for problem gamblers to bet more heavily than social gamblers when there was less probability of winning, whereas social gamblers were found to bid more when there was a higher probability of winning. Different prize levels did not produce significant differences in amounts gambled, nor did the questionnaire measure show any significant differences in wagering preference between the groups.
