'Understanding and responding to gambling harms: A brief guide for professionals' online course
Why we developed the 'Understanding and responding to gambling harms' online course
This free course, created in collaboration with RSPH and GambleAware, provides useful guidance for professionals who do not specialise in the treatment of Gambling Disorder, but who work with potentially vulnerable groups. It is particularly useful to those working in social and criminal justice settings including, but not limited to; social workers, employment advisers, GPs, psychologists, and probation officers. Additionally, it is a resource to assist organisational leaders, which at this higher management level is essential to integrate brief interventions and to support workers in responding to gambling harms.
Since its launch in 2018, ‘Understanding and Responding to Gambling Harms’ has been completed by almost 7,000 people including nurses, NHS workers and those in the mental health sector.
