Gambling disorder and Lockdown

It strikes me, these days labeled as the first of the long-awaited phase 2, to hear a word frequently spoken by patients being treated for Gambling Disorder"let's hope…". 

Gambling Disorder: 3 is "better" than 1! Three different paths to addiction.

It is now evident that the disturbance gives gambling both a real public health problem both with regard to the international and Italian context. The main causes of this phenomenon are the continuous and rapid growth of game possibilities on the territory and the increase in the use of forms of gambling online.

Learned impotence, locus of control, cognitive bias & ego-sustainability

pokerIn the panorama of pathological addictions, gambling has overwhelmingly taken place in the last decade and today in Italy we are experiencing a real emergency in terms of the number of cases and the variety of forms of manifestation of the phenomenon. From 2007 to today the Orthos project, directed by Riccardo Zebetto, welcomed about 400 players from all over Italy, Switzerland, Croatia, France and England to short residential intensive psychotherapy treatment. The majority of them come from the Tuscany region, which with its foresight has financed the intervention for its citizens, thus limiting the damage that is produced in the social fabric to which they belong.

In recent years, the opportunities for gambling have multiplied and branched across the territory, differentiating and pervading every social space.
