This presentation will briefly discuss the main theoretical aspects of network analysis and the criteria for understanding networks describing the relationships between psychopathological symptoms. In addition, the results of existing research using network analysis methods available for gambling behavior will be briefly presented.
This lecture will be presented by Zsolt Horváth, which will describe how problem gambling behaviour can be understood and described in the framework of network analysis.
