Learning Objectives

The holiday season and the beginning of a New Year can heighten anxiety for those who grapple with addiction; mental stress can be heightened, and financial strain stretched to the limit. For those who are affected by problems caused by gambling, stress at this time of year can be magnified to new levels – especially when gambling is viewed as a financial solution. Join us for this special webinar to listen as the Center’s Peer Recovery Support Specialists share their personal experiences with gambling addiction and learn financial empowerment strategies to assist your clients and communities.

Attendees should be able to:

  • Understand through personal stories how problem gambling and gambling disorder can heighten stress during the holiday and in the New Year.
  • Identify tools and strategies to assist in assessing and intervening with clients in financial distress.
  • Learn the tools and resources offered by the Center, including Peer Support.
