Free NAADAC Webinar

November 19, 2014


Most people with a gambling disorder don't seek professional treatment but a majority are in treatment for co-occurring addictive and psychological disorders. It is, therefore, vital for all mental health and addiction professionals to know how to screen and assess for a gambling disorder. This training will provide the most up-to-date research on gambling disorders and effective methods to screen clients and will cover the pertinent changes to the diagnostic code for gambling disorder in the American Psychiatric Association's fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and will provide an overview of gambling disorder in the adult population and vulnerable subpopulations.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify three screening tools normally used to screen for a possible gambling disorder;
  • Identify the prevalence rates of gambling disorder in the general adult population;
  • Explain the rationale for the changes in “gambling disorder” in the DSM-5; and
  • Explain why co-occurring disorders are important to understanding the development and maintenance of a gambling disorder.
