Behavioural addiction: Opening Pandora's loot box and navigating the mass debate

by Insight

Research on gambling has led to an understanding that non-substance-related addictions exist, however it is less clear how we define these. This talk discusses considerations that are important to strike the balance between acknowledging behavioural addiction and avoiding pathologisation of normal behaviours with candidates such as pornography-use disorder, buying-shopping disorder and others.


Associate Professor Matthew Gullo is a clinical psychologist in the School of Applied Psychology and the Centre for Mental Health, Griffith University.
