Clock Hours/Continuing Education Units: 2

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.

Objectives:

  • Define chasing in the context of problem gambling and describe examples of financial and non-financial chasing.
  • Develop an understanding of non-financial (emotional, cognitive, spiritual) motives for chasing.
  • Describe treatment interventions to address chasing behaviors.

Dr. Lori Rugle has been working in the field of problem gambling for 30 years. She has managed problem gambling treatment programs within the Veterans Administration, in the private sector, and within state systems. She has participated in research on neuropsychological assessment of pathological gamblers, neuroimaging and genetic studies of problem gambling, psychopharmacological treatment of problem gambling, gambling problems and coping among homeless veterans, trauma history, and problem gambling. She has consulted with state and national governments on developing and implementing problem gambling treatment programs. She is currently Program Director for the University of Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling.
