  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Gambling Disorder; Antisocial Personality Disorder; Psychopathy; Crime; Comorbidity; Subtypes.

This paper aims to offer some considerations about the relationship between Gambling Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder, in order to shed light on the links that exist between these two disorders. The first aim of the essay is to discuss the research documenting a link between the GD and the ASPD by an exhaustive overview. Then, it looks at various aspects related to antisociality, highlighting how a multidimensional view of this construct is essential for an accurate understanding of its link with the DGA. The reading of the main theoretical models about gambling is an opportunity for further considerations about the comorbidities between antisocial behavior and GD, providing a detailed discussion of the empirical evidence that can explain why and how of this comorbidity. Finally, the essay aims to provide a useful guidance, clinical and forensic, for the psychologists involved in this area considering the individual and social consequences of GD.
