The interaction between biological, psychological and socio-cultural factors

The interaction between biological, psychological and socio-cultural factors is a part of addictive disorder: gambling.

The three types of factors – biological, psychological and socio-cultural – often overlap and should be viewed holistically. Each has an impact on the other two. For example, limited dopamine release (biological) may result in stress (psychological), whilst poverty (socio-cultural) may result in social learning (psychological).
