Behavioural treatments

Theoretical base is classical and operant conditioning.

Typical treatments use an aversive stimulus (electric shock, emetics, etc.) and is given when the person engages in gambling.

Evaluation is limited by very small sample sizes and lack of control groups

Success with these techniques appears to depend upon the therapist and the patients desire to succeed.

Does this form of therapy get to the underlying problems?
