In a time where we see increased access, availability and participation in gambling, it is also important to recognize there is also in increase in the number of individuals whose lives are negatively impacted. While there is an ever-growing number of research studies on the topic, there are a limited number of current resources available to counselors and mental health professionals focused on practical application of treatment services. This program offers a sneak peek into the creation of a new book aimed at addressing this.

Our presenters joined us to discuss the paths that have led them to this point, and how by using their clinical and research experience, they have been able to present a new book on treatment strategies, focusing on topics relevant to today’s world. Their book, The Gambling Disorder Treatment Handbook” is the focus of discussion in the program.
