Description

Problem gambling for AOD clinicians, workshop #04

Presenter: Dr Stephanie Merkouris

1 Day workshop, Thursday 18th June 2020

Gambling disorder is the only 'non-substance-related disorder' included under substance-related and addictive disorders in the DSM-V. As gambling related problems often occur for people engaged in alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment, clinicians are ideally placed to identify and respond accordingly to gambling problems experienced by their clients.

The focus of the workshop is to increase awareness and knowledge about problem gambling behaviours. The aim is to enable clinicians to identify people exhibiting problem gambling behaviours and be able to provide some basic harm minimisation strategies to help reduce the risks of ongoing gambling harms.

Dr Stephanie Merkouris is a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Deakin University. She has almost 10 years experience as a researcher in the gambling field. Her main research interests relate to the development and evaluation of treatments for gambling problems and the prospective examination of factors associated with treatment outcome and the development of gambling problems. Moreover, she has an interest in how advances in technology can be used for assessment and intervention purposes.

Who should register? AOD and mental health clinicians.

Cost: $220 (payable by credit card only).
