Upcoming Gambling Trainings

2016-2017 Ohio Disordered Gambling Trainings

2017 Advanced Disordered Gambling Training with Dr. David Ledgerwood

April 6th, 2017 - Cleveland, OH 

April 7th, 2017 - Columbus, OH 

More research has been conducted in the past two decades on gambling disorder treatment than at any other time in history. As a result, we know that behavioral treatments can help people with gambling disorder to reduce the burden of this illness. However, little is known about specific factors that can affect how well treatments work. Dr. Ledgerwood will provide an overview of recent research on factors that influence the effectiveness of problem gambling treatment including: co-occurring disorders; trauma and PTSD; impulsivity and reward processing; subtypes of gambling disorder; and barriers to problem gambling treatment. The presentation will highlight strategies that therapists can use to stress positive aspects of the therapeutic alliance, as well as approaches that may help therapists to minimize the negative impact of influences that increase the possibility of treatment failure.
