    Created: 22/09/2021

    When: 14:00 - 16:00, Tuesday 28 September 2021
    Where: Zoom call, online
    This event is being organised by GamCare
    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    GamCare is the leading national provider of free information, advice and support for anyone affected by problem gambling.

    The subject of gambling and its associated harms is currently a hot topic and is acknowledged by experts as a serious health issue, with far reaching consequences. It negatively affects finances, mental health and relationships, not just for the gambler but for the those around them. Social perceptions consider gambling to be a male activity, but emerging studies conclude that women and young people are just as affected. Nevertheless, approximately only 1% of women affected by gambling seek help. GamCare wants to change this.

    This workshop (14:00 - 16:00 on 28 September 2021) aims to help make problem gambling more identifiable for practitioners working with women in both generic and gender specific services. This training is a CPD accredited session. Book a place here.

    In this session you will have the opportunity to discuss these issues and:

    • Gain an understanding of problem gambling issues specific to women
    • Learn about the impacts and risks of problem gambling
    • Increase your confidence to discuss the subject of problem gambling
    • Gain vital knowledge about screening tools and referral pathways for support and treatment

    Please Note: This session will be held on Zoom & links to sessions will be sent out via e-mail on the morning of the event.
