Event description

Description

This training will explore the intersection where problem gambling and trauma meet, considering the various types of gambling and the populations that experience trauma (i.e. sexual abuse survivors, victims of domestic abuse, veterans, etc.). Evidenced based and trauma informed screening tools and treatment interventions to address both issues will be explored.

At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least 3 signs/symptoms of both problem gambling and trauma reactions (across various vulnerable populations);

  • Describe the connection between problem gambling and trauma and how the two problems interact with each other;

  • Identify at least 3 evidenced based and trauma informed treatment interventions to address both of problem gambling and trauma symptoms together.
