Continuing education from the comfort of your own home. Throughout the year continuing education is offered by live webinar. The webinars are interactive in nature, with time for questions and a knowledge post test at the end. These trainings can be completed at the comfort of your own home.

Gambling Disorder and Suicide Ideation REGISTER

June 19, 2018 12:00-1:00 EDT

Gambling Disorder has the highest rate of suicide attempt among all addictions. Stemming from variables such as financial loss, unemployment, depression/anxiety and loss of relationships often leads individuals affected with disordered gambling to believe there is no other way out. Understanding this correlation, building skills in assessing lethality and increasing comfort in having these difficult conversations is crucial in the assessment and treatment of gambling disorder.
