Overview

This seminal study, written for both therapists and researchers in the nascent field of gambling disorders, offers "an overview of problem and pathological gambling from a psychological perspective." Petry (psychiatry, U. of Connecticut) explores current theories about gambling as a disorder, including its relationship to depression; investigates common risk factors associated with pathological gambling; reviews common treatment methods; and presents her own cognitive-behavioral treatment model. Synthesizing data from numerous related domains in psychology, the author offers a wide- ranging resource for studying and treating a common and largely unexplored disorder.
