OhioMHAS, in partnership with Ohio for Responsible Gambling, is pleased to announce that Dr. David Ledgerwood from Wayne State University will lead a pair of upcoming Advanced Disordered Gambling Trainings in Cleveland and Columbus.
The trainings will provide six (6) CEU's for social workers, counselors, and gambling counselors as well as 6 RCH's for chemical dependency counselors. Prerequisite: Stages 1 and 2 or approved gambling counseling training.
Cost is $25, and breakfast and lunch are included.
Upon completing the training, participants will be aware of recent research on factors that influence the effectiveness of problem gambling treatment; will understand how co-occurring disorders, trauma, impulsivity and reward processing deficits negatively impact gambling treatment success, and will be able to incorporate treatment strategies that stress therapeutic alliances, as well as approaches that minimize the impact of psychopathology on treatment failure.
