A 3-Hour Training with Jeremy Wampler, LCSW, ICGC II, BACC, CGT, LADC & Fiorigio (Fred) Fetta, LPC, ICGC-II, BACC, AADC
April 4, 2023
PRESENTATION: There has been a dramatic shift in the past 10 years in both the substance use and mental health fields. Not only are providers recognizing the importance of integrating treatment for multiple substances (e.g. alcohol, drug and tobacco use) but also the need to include mental health disorders into clinical formulations. However, the screening, assessment and treatment of gambling disorder often falls through the cracks, even in well-developed co-occurring disorder enhanced programs. This training will focus on how integration of services can be developed in substance use, mental health and co-occurring disorder programs as well as in the prevention services realm. Participants will be encouraged to adapt select philosophies and treatment interventions into their own programs. This training is relevant to both treatment and prevention, and will include lecture, small and large group discussion, and learning tasks.
At the conclusion of the training participants will be able to:
- List a minimum of two (2) reasons it is important to include gambling awareness into practice in treatment and prevention programs;
- Identify three (3) ways to integrate gambling within an assessment;
- Describe a treatment intervention to assist clients working through a gambling disorder.
