Notably, how an individual understands their role as a faculty member begins not with the first faculty position but actually during or prior to their graduate school experience.
Without the socialization process, and mentorship, doctoral students are likely to struggle and commit avoidable mistakes. For many, such as scholars of color, success in the academy does not allow room for error, and undoubtedly those errors can cause individuals to suffer lasting consequences. Those mistakes are often the result of limited access to information, as well as a lack of the social capital that is required for a successful academic career.

She says substance abuse is a good model for gambling disorders. In fact, many of the diagnostic criteria for gambling disorders are nearly identical to those used for diagnosing substance abuse disorders. For that reason, much of her research involves using the GAM to learn whether there are ways to help determine which gamblers might become problem gamblers and which problem gamblers might progress to pathological gambling.
A recent study from the Journal of Psychiatric Research points to two activities that might indicate a risk for crossing over: betting on the stock or commodities markets and betting on bingo. Evidence also suggests that people who gamble tend to smoke and drink more than non-gamblers. Cunningham-Williams and her colleagues also have found that the total number of problem gamblers is growing as the availability of legal gambling increases.
But the rate of pathological gambling remains at about 1. Cottler and Cloninger say gambling research lags a bit behind research into other addictions, such as alcohol or drug dependence. She hopes the tool will help researchers learn how prevalent gambling problems are in the population and identify risk behaviors linked to gambling problems.
They also are attempting to identify genetic, environmental and personality factors related to pathological gambling. Cloninger says most advertising for gambling, as well as ads for smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol, tend to make the activity look like a way to have lots of fun and meet beautiful people. Cunningham-Williams worries that the current gambling climate is continually creating new problem gamblers.
