The 2013 update of the DSM-5 classifies problem gambling with “Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders.” With the increase in lotteries, legalized, and Internet gambling, more people need treatment for a problem gambling disorder. In the first webinar in our four-part series, Dr. Peter Nathan of the University of Iowa gives an overview of problem gambling: diagnosis, epidemiology, and the new DSM-5 criteria.

About the presenter: Dr. Peter E. Nathan is University of Iowa Foundation Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Public Health emeritus. He has written extensively about the diagnostic and statistical manuals (DSMs); alcoholism assessment, diagnosis, and treatment; and empirically supported treatments. Nathan served as provost and a faculty member in psychology and public health at the University of Iowa; as senior program officer for the MacArthur Foundation; and as Henry and Anna Starr Professor of Psychology, director of clinical training, and director of the Center of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University.
