“What’s NEW in Gambling, Even for Experienced Clinicians”

This advanced course is designed to provide updates from the gambling industry and discuss how they impact delivery of care and intervention approaches for clinicians. With the expansion of online gambling and gaming, this course will review terminology, provide demos and generate discussions about the latest technology advances.

We will review technology interventions and solutions and determine the clinical and ethical challenges on the horizon in the counseling profession. And lastly, this course will review evidence-based interventions and how to apply them through the use of technology, effectively.

 

Goals & Objectives

Upon completing this session, participants will:

  • Become educated on new advances in the gaming industry by reviewing various online gaming and gambling sites and discussing clinical implications in order to increase their knowledge of at-risk behaviors/activities of their clients.
  • Gain insight into the full continuum of Harm Reduction interventions through interactive lecture in order to increase their ability to assess and intervene in a clinically appropriate manner with their clients.
  • Acquire the necessary knowledge of mental health technology solutions, including apps and software platforms, to increase their competence and skills in providing up to date clinical care.
  • Increase knowledge of evidence-based interventions specific to gambling addiction and treatment interventions.
  • Practice applying clinical techniques to gambling disorder through the use of case studies and group work to determine the pros and cons of implementing into clinical practice.
