About the Course:
Little is known about the natural course of gambling disorders. The present study followed a group of active pathological gamblers for a three-and-a-half year period. In particular, the study addressed changes in gambling behavior and the process individuals used in making changes, including whether or not they had plans to reduce gambling when they initially participated and if so, whether they followed through and how.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Natural Course of Gambling Disorders: Forty-Month Follow-Up created by David C. Hodgins and Nicole Peden
Journal/Publisher:Journal of Gambling Issues
Publication Date:Issue 14, September 2005
