Summer Focus on Problem Gambling Session #1: How to Successfully Integrate Problem Gambling Screening and Referral into Your Practice.

Presenter: Tana Russell, SUDP, NCTTP, WSCGC-II, CGT, Assistant Director, Evergreen Council on Problem Gambling

Many behavioral health providers working with people who have substance use and mental health challenges report feeling under-equipped to effectively provide problem gambling screening and referral services in their practice and programs. This session seeks to answer common questions and reduce barriers to successfully integrate problem gambling conversations, through screening, brief interventions, and referrals to specialists. In this workshop, participants will receive an overview of evidenced-based and validated gambling screening instruments, best practices when it comes to screening, and skills practice.

Learning Goals:

  • Be able to choose from a variety of validated gambling screening instruments to select an appropriate tool(s) for use in your practice.
  • Be able to use at least 3 or more screening best practices when conducting a problem gambling screen.
  • Be equipped with a list of referral resources to provide to clients who may need either further assessment by a specialist or community-level support for gambling-related problems.
