About the Workshop

Disordered gambling is seldom assessed for, easily concealed by those affected, yet is responsible for devastating damage to finances, families, and functioning. While research supports the benefits of early intervention, healthcare practitioners often lack training in proper identification, referral options, or intervention pertaining to disordered gambling. This activity will provide an introductory overview of the DSM-5 Gambling Disorder diagnosis to help the behavioral health practitioner recognize the impacts and implications of disordered gambling, as well as any signs and symptoms in the individuals and families they serve.
