In the DSM 5 and previous editions of the DSM, chasing has been a key-criteria in the diagnosis of gambling disorder and has long been viewed as a distinctive feature of problematic gambling. One of the seminal books in the field of problem gambling, The Chase, Career of the Compulsive Gambler (Lesieur,1984) depicts the desperate need to win or get even financially. However, “chasing” can be extended to explore how gamblers chase in their attempt to meet emotional and spiritual needs. This webinar will explore financial and non-financial aspects of chasing with clinical examples and applications.
