Event description

Description

Now in its 15th year, the Connecticut Council on Problem Gambling's Annual Conference will focus on efforts in Connecticut to address emerging trends and the future of problem gambling.

This year's conference will include sessions presented by accomplished professionals in the field of disordered gambling. Workshops will address at-risk populations and the far-reaching impact of gambling, gaming and other risky behaviors. Participants will hear about the intersection of problem gambling and human trafficking and receive updates on legislation and advocacy in Connecticut. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about different programs that are facilitated in Connecticut to help identify the needs of people in our communities, clinical implications, and best practices for interventions. We will also feature a recovery panel, with moving stories of disordered gambling and the process of recovery.

This year, we are honored to have Spencer Christian as our keynote speaker. Best known as the former weather forecaster for ABC’s Good Morning America, Spencer recently authored a book entitled, "You Bet Your Life,” in which he details his struggles with disordered gambling.

Cost includes breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. CEUs pending from NASW, CCB and NCPG. For more information please contact Kaitlin Foshay-Brown at (860) 604-0194 or KaitlinF@CCPG.org.
