Gambling is a multifaceted behavior that is influenced across biological, psychological, and sociological factors. Research on at-risk and problem gambling has continued to show empirical differences between gamblers and non-gamblers across neurobiological, psychological, and sociocultural factors. While the increase in empirical evidence is encouraging, little is currently known about the extent to which clinicians can identify and/or use biological/neurological, psychological, and sociocultural factors within their own practice. Therefore, the general theme of the webinar will review biopsychosocial aspects related to at-risk and problem gambling and how clinicians can use this information in clinical practice.

  • Explain the role of bio/neurological, psychological, and sociological factors that influence at-risk and problem gambling.

  • Identify the main concepts within a biopsychosocial treatment model for problem gambling.

  • Describe ways to use aspects of biopsychosocial factors within clinical practice for treatment of problem gambling.
