Learning Objectives

Although current data reports men have a higher percentage over women of disordered gambling diagnosis, data also shows there is an increase in women who are gambling and who are at risk of becoming disordered gamblers.  In celebration of Women’s Health Month, join us for a discussion about women’s gambling behaviors, how these behaviors differ from men, and what we can do as health professionals and family members to support safe gambling among women. Based on a current literature review, participants will learn the facts on women’s gambling, what forms of gambling appeal more to women, and what can be done to prevent problem gambling behaviors among women.

Attendees should be able to:

  • Determine the difference between women’s and men’s gambling behaviors and types of gambling preferences.
  • Learn what can be done to prevent problem gambling behaviors in women by encouraging safe gambling behaviors and use of prevention strategies.
  • Learn the best ways to have the conversation with a woman family member, friend, or client if you are concerned about her gambling behaviors.
