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.
- Addiction Counselors
- Social Workers
- Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the differences between ‘action gambling’ and ‘escape gambling’ behaviors
- Identify at least 3 indicators of disordered gambling in an individual, couple, or family
- Integrate one screening tool into their practice
