Gambling Disorder: The Non-Substance-Related Addictive Disorder
What do the DSM-5 and ASAM say about Gambling Disorder? How is it related to SUD and mental health disorders and treatment services? If a client I’m seeing reports experiencing gambling problems, how can I respond and where can I refer them? This session seeks to answer those questions and more, with practical skills and demonstration to break down the SBIRT model into simple, how-to steps for creating a safe space to talk about gambling.
The workshop will provide a broad overview of problem gambling during which participants will learn to be able to:
- Identify how and where Gambling Disorder is defined and how it relates to substance use and mental health disorders and treatment services.
- Use 3 best practices to complete a validated gambling screen, provide feedback, brief intervention, and referral to treatment services.
- Make referrals using available resources in order to refer clients seeking specialty care for gambling-related problems.
This training is appropriate for behavioral health practitioners, prevention specialists, peer recovery coaches, and others who would like to add to their skill base to be able to better address problem gambling and Gambling Disorder. It is being offered free of charge to practitioners from Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington State and beyond.
