AbstractThe research presented in this article is parlly funded by a grant from the Gambling Problem Solving Fund, led by Jacek Buczny (project title: "Self-control and problem and pathological gambling. Methods of increasing the control behaviour", agreementNo.75lH/E/13 and7lHlWEll4). The aim of the research was the adaptation and validation of a Gambling Craving Scale (GACS) tool into Polish conditions. The authors of the tool have defined gambling as a desire, emphasizing the affective component of this addiction. The Polish study rvas attended by five competent judges who assessed the quality of translations, and two groups of participants: players (n:80) and non players (n:557). The analyses carried out showed that the tool parameters and męasurements meet the psychometric standards to ensure high reliability and theoretical, diagnostic, prognostic or criterion accuracy. The conclusions drawn from tlre analysis of quantitative data suggest that the GACS scale has a higher predictive validity than other commonly used screening tool. Therefore, the adapted tool can be applied to introduce adequate therapeutic practices and predict the recurrence ofaddiction.
