      A heuristic model to account for the development and maintenance of problem gambling is provided with the aim of directing clinical management and future research. Previous explanations of problem gambling have been limited in two main ways. Firstly, the models have been primarily descriptive, and secondly they have generally lacked clinical value. •Gambling is enjoyable and social. •Gambling is a great way of relieving stress or other negative emotions. •The gambler feels great and powerful, and often begins to form irrational beliefs about how likely they are to win, or how much control they have over the game in which they are gambling.

Arterberry, Matthew P. Martens, Stephanie K. Takamatsu. 1. A scale based on DSM criteria for “pathological gambling” might have been better labelled a “pathological gaming scale.” However, as the DSM has not yet accepted pathological gaming as a disorder, labeling self-reported behavior as an unrecognized pathology seems presumptuous.

Therefore, we decided to use the most prevalent term among researchers: game by: This article reports the development of the Gambling Craving Scale (GACS). In Study 1 (N = ), a factor analysis revealed the emergence of a 9-item scale with 3 factors: Anticipation, Desire.

In the present study, the relationship between gambling and metacognition and the mediating role of metacognition in the relationship between gambling and depressive and anxious symptomatology.

Pathological gambling involves multitudinous costs related to financial, legal, and public health care aspects, as well as to specific psychological disorders. Despite the overall evidence suggesting that comorbid disorders represent a risk factor for pathological gambling, there is scant evidence on the appropriate treatments for gamblers with such disorders.

Aims The aims of this study are to develop and validate a measure to screen for a range of gambling‐related cognitions (GRC) in gamblers. Design and participants A total of volunteers were recruited from a community‐based population.

They were divided randomly into two groups. Principal axis factoring with varimax rotation was performed on group one and confirmatory factor. This study aimed to develop and test the Japanese version of the Gambling Related Cognitions Scale (GRCS-J) to investigate its reliability and validity for assessing gambling cognitions in a Japanese sample.

Five hundred and thirty-six participants ( male, female; Mean age = years) from a community sample living in Japan were included in the analyses. The goal of our studies was to develop the first self-report scale of metacognitions about gambling.

We conducted three studies with one community (n = ) and two clinical (n = ; n = 87) samples to test the structure and psychometric properties of the Metacognitions about Gambling Questionnaire and examined its capacity to prospectively.
