The Wiley-blackwell Handbook of Disordered Gambling by David C. S. Richard

The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Disordered Gambling is a complete guide to the current empirical literature relating to the conceptualization, assessment, and treatment of disordered gambling. The international contributors are all experienced, practicing clinicians who discuss gambling within a global context. * Best-practice guidelines for the clinical management of problem and disordered gambling * Contains empirically derived findings that translate research into practical clinical applications that clinicians and counselors can use in understanding and treating problem gamblers * Brings together a distinguished international group of scholars whose contributions discuss gambling as it occurs around the globe * Clearly organized into sections that cover conceptualization, research, assessment, treatment, and special topics


Overall, the Handbook is well worth the time invested in reading it, as leading experts from various disciplines studying and treating disordered gambling contributed their knowledge and expertise. (Addiction, 17 December 2014)
