Patients seeking help for gambling disorder often require a constellation of interventions and services. Moreover, romantic partners are negatively impacted by problem gambling issues and frequently report feeling devastated and betrayed by the gambler. This training will focus on assessment and therapeutic strategies for problem gamblers with some focus devoted to relevant issues for those who also work with romantic partners.
Note: Providers can contact the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling to receive information about how they can become a certified gambling counselor and part of the Florida referral network of providers working with problem gamblers and their families.
