Sure Bet 3When compared to other addictions, Gambling Disorder can arguably be looked at as an "underserved population," resulting in noticeably lower awareness levels and treatment options. Yet gambling addiction has been linked to higher rates of suicide and potential violence. These violent consequences must be considered when intervening and treating Gambling Disorder to protect those suffering from the condition as well as their families and our communities at large. This training is designed to educate clinicians regarding the potential connection of Gambling Disorder to violence and to equip them with the necessary treatment knowledge when considering the dangers of compulsive gambling behaviors.

Completion of this training will meet one of the requirements necessary for the NCPGP Provider Registry. Participation in this training does not assure that a provider will be selected for the NCPGP Registry, but it is a required component of becoming an NCPGP provider.
