Gambling disorder affects about 1-2% of the general population. These individuals, their families, and communities experience significant harms due to their maladaptive gambling behavior. This workshop will review the disorder and its etiology, identify high-risk populations, and discuss evidenced-based treatment options for individuals and families.
