Event description

Description

This course will focus on helping clinicians learn how to engage and treat the entire family of problem gamblers and begin the path of recovery from this addiction. All aspects of the effects on family members will be discussed, including the financial impact on the family, the emotional ramifications, including trust, and the psychological consequences for many family members.

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

  • Identify symptoms of problem gambling and be able to understand the impact this addiction may have on family members;
  • Interview, assess, refer, and treat members of the gamblers family members who may be affected by the gambling problems;
  • Provide a safe, therapeutic environment for growth and understanding of family members of problem gamblers as they work through the issues in themselves and their family.
