Lackawanna County Problem Gambling Webinar – Continuing the Conversation

In October 2017 a major gambling expansion bill was passed in Pennsylvania, allowing for the possibility of more legalized gambling than ever before. Over the past couple of years, we have seen the launch of several new types of gambling, with more being made available soon.

It is vital for treatment and prevention professionals to not only be aware of this expansion in order to better serve clients, but also to have a better understanding of the activities that may lead to new populations of clients. In addition, it is also vital to recognize other emerging trends, including the continuing popularity and expansion of video gaming, and the many connections it has to gambling.

 

Presenter:

  • Josh Ercole, Executive Director, CCGP

 

Learning Objectives 

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:

  • Become familiar with at least three new forms of legislated gambling in Pennsylvania
  • Discuss the potential impact of expanded gambling on existing clients, and how it may also lead to problems with a new population of clients
  • Identify the protections that have been included in newly legislated gambling, and how this may differ from previously legislated gambling
  • Identify the impact COVID-19 has had on individuals with, and without, prior gambling related problems
