Description

Description:

Pathological gambling is an impulse control disorder characterized by persistent and recurrent maladaptive gambling behavior.  Hypnotic phenomena of absorption, dissociation and imaginative involvement seem to play a significant role in the persistence of gambling behavior.  These capacities of the client can be utilized in effective treatment, using hypnosis.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List four diagnostic criteria of pathological gambling.
  2. Discuss the psycho-pathology of the disorder.
  3. Describe the types of treatment and apply the use of hypnotic imaginal desensitization and rehearsal for pathological gambling.
