September 21, 2020
Working with Families in Problem Gambling Treatment is a free series of 10 training modules designed for problem gambling counselors and supervisors, as well as other mental health professionals, who want to learn more about including family members and important others in problem gambling treatment. This series is also designed for problem gambling administrators and prevention specialists who want to learn more about the role family members and important others can play in problem gambling treatment and the impact of problem gambling on families.
The modules are based on Oregon’s Working with Families in Problem Gambling Treatment manual, which is available to download after registering for the series. Each module covers one of 10 chapters in the manual, along with related content and provides examples of applying core clinical concepts.
These modules must be taken in order as each module builds on information offered in previous modules. Participants who complete the series are awarded a total of 30 continuing education units (CEUs). Three CEUs are awarded after completing each module.
