Welcome and Congratulations on completing your problem gambling specific training hours. The Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania is responding to popular demand and we are pleased to announce a new program to help support counselors in their effort to become nationally certified gambling counselors.
Clinical conference calls are now available to those counselors with at least 15 hours of approved gambling specific training and education. These conference calls are designed to meet or exceed the requirements for Board Approved
Clinical Consultation (BACC) hours as required by the International Gambling Counselor Certification Board (IGCCB).
These conference calls will be scheduled monthly and last for one hour. A minimum of four hours of case presentation time is part of the guidelines used by the BACC’s to confirm for the IGCCB that the candidate for certification has demonstrated competence and skill with gambling specific screening assessments, treatment planning, restitution planning, group work, family and individual work with gambling treatment strategies etc.
(Visit www.IGCCB.org for details and requirements for national certification.)
