Behavioral Addictions provides a front row seat onto the late-breaking developments in one of the most rapidly evolving domains of diagnosis. The American Psychiatric Association’s recent recognition of the first-ever behavioral addiction, Gambling Disorder, has brought renewed attention to the broader spectrum of other behavioral compulsions. This book provides a conceptualization of behavioral addictions and a brief overview of the varied forms of addictive behaviors and treatments, including gambling, online gaming, food addiction, pornography addiction, sex addiction, compulsive shopping, Internet addictions, and a variety of impulse control disorders, among others. Developments in the conceptualization, prevention and intervention are addressed, as well, in relation to the rapidly developing field of behavioral addictions.
