Summer Focus on Problem Gambling Session #2: Problem Gambling Education: How to Integrate into SUD/MH Programming, and What to Cover

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

Many Behavioral Health specialists are accustomed to educating clients on co-occurring disorders, taking care of health and sleep hygiene, substance education, or even parenting skills. Education around problem gambling fits nicely into standard education curriculum, such as treatment of substance use disorders, cross-addiction and co-occurring disorders, communication skills, improving relationships, and more. This session will provide core guidance on topics to cover when providing problem gambling education, as well as make available resources for educational materials, including videos, worksheets, workbooks, and more. The session will address, and allow for discussion, related to opportunities and barriers to establishing a gambling-recovery-safe professional culture. 

Learning Goals:

  • Receive guidance and explanations of topics to cover when educating SUD/MH clients on problem gambling. 
  • Review educational resources that can be used within existing educational curriculum or to design your own. 
  • Discuss opportunities to establish a professional agency-wide culture that reduces stigma around gambling-related harms.
