Bethlehem, PA - Free Problem Gambling Training: Addressing Stigma
Wind Creek Bethlehem is sponsoring a workshop presented by The Council on Compulsive Gambling of Pennsylvania, Inc.
“Addressing Stigma with Gambling Use Disorder”
Stigma is an issue that is often talked about and often misunderstood in the impact it has on
individuals, groups, and society as a whole. Large of amounts of research have been done on
stigma as it relates to mental illness, substance use, and gambling. Stigma often leads to
individuals feeling more isolated and less likely to seek help. Gambling activities and gamblers
have long been stigmatized impacting the access to care for gamblers and their families. We
will be seeking to discuss stigma, how it impacts gamblers and their families, and how we as
professionals can help provide hope and relief from stigma by identifying resources and
recovery capital for individuals, families, and groups.
