“Insights and Perspectives for Problem Gamblers with Adult ADHD”
Presented By Dr. Rory C. Reid, Ph.D., LCSW
There is some research indicating a disproportionate number of problem gamblers also meet diagnostic criteria for adult ADHD. There are unique aspects of this comorbidity that can be challenging for mental health providers. In this webinar, Dr. Reid will discuss assessment issues for ADHD based on the DSM-5 criteria among problem gamblers. The latest findings from the scientific literature about ADHD will also be addressed. Finally, Dr. Reid will offer pragmatic solutions and empirically supported interventions for problem gamblers with ADHD.
