About the Course:
Pathological Gambling and Alcohol Use Disorder examines the separate and overlapping pathological gambling (PA) and alcohol use disorders (AUD) as estimated by epidemiological surveys conducted in both community and clinical samples. It reviews the processes and mechanisms that might account for the frequent co-occurrence of these disorders, and it examines what the co-occurrence of these disorders implies for treatment and highlights promising areas for future research.
