All In: "Why Athletes Might Be At Risk for Gambling-Related Problems"
Since gambling disorder was officially recognized in DSM-III in 1980, researchers have identified a number of risk factors, as well as special populations at increased risk of developing gambling problems. Notably, athletes are more likely than non-athletes to engage in risky behaviors, like high-risk drinking, and to exhibit characteristics such as sensation-seeking and competitiveness, that have been linked to at-risk gambling. Additionally, the sporting world has welcomed gambling as an important part of spectatorship. As gambling becomes a more integrated aspect of athletes’ workplace, risk for problems might increase. These characteristics and risk factors, as well as others, suggest that athletes might be particularly at risk of experiencing gambling problems. The first half of this webinar will present a biopsychosocial model of addiction, the syndrome model, and will identify specific pathways and factors within this model that might make athletes particularly vulnerable to the development of gambling problems. The second half will present the preliminary results from a scoping review of the current literature on gambling among athletes.
