Intro to Problem Gambling for Child Welfare

This 90-minute webinar is designed to introduce the latest legalized gambling options in Pennsylvania and define problematic and disordered gambling.

This can lead to children and families becoming involved in the child welfare system. This webinar will educate professionals to assess families through a gambling lens, including signs of parent problem gambling. Participants will also learn about the PA Council on Problem Gambling as a resource for education and referrals for help.
