Question: in reallife it might not be practical or ethical to...

Question details
  1. In real-life it might not be practical or ethical to perform a functional analysis on someone’s behaviour but for this hypothetical example let us pretend ethics, money, and time are not a concern. For this example, someone has a gambling problem that is ruining their life. It means they have no money, they have alienated themselves from friends and family and they are at risk of losing their job because of the time spent gambling. I need you to brainstorm all of the possible reasons the gambling behaviour is reinforced and devise a way to do a functional analysis to see which one of these reinforcements is the key one.
