Abstract [en]

Context: Although cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is recommended to address the high prevalence of co-occurring mental ill health in problem gamblers, there are, to our knowledge, no specific treatment protocols available targeting psychiatric co-morbidities. Furthermore, psychiatric co-morbidities are seldom addressed in gambling treatment studies.

Intervention: We are currently developing a new internet-based CBT protocol based on the Pathways model [1]. Briefly, this etiological model states that there are distinct pathways for development and maintenance of gambling problem in conjunction with psychiatric co-morbidities. Our treatment will offer tailored behavioral interventions targeting the specific maintenance processes for each gambling pathway proposed by the Pathway model.

Methods: Treatment-seeking participants (N=20) with Gambling Disorder and psychiatric co-morbidities will be recruited in a first pilot study delivered via the internet. In addition to evaluating feasibility and potential efficacy, we will examine moderators according to the proposed maintenance processes in the Pathways model.

Results: The pilot study is planned to commence spring 2019.

Conclusion: The results of the pilot study will hopefully contribute to specific knowledge regarding treatment interventions for gamblers with psychiatric co-morbidities, as well as to the research field as a whole.
