With the rising number of individuals developing a gambling addiction, comes an increasing need for advanced specialized knowledge in the areas of assessment, referral, and treatment of a gambling addiction. To meet this need, the University of Minnesota Duluth, Continuing Education (CE) and the North American Training Institute (NATI) have collaborated to offer Studies in Gambling Addiction: Counseling the Pathological Gambler ─ an online 60-hour noncredit professional development certificate on the topic of gambling addiction.
This certificate is designed to provide specific knowledge and advanced clinical understanding which will contribute to the identification, diagnosis, referral, and treatment of individuals with a gambling addiction.
The online Studies in Gambling Addiction certificate is the only program of its kind in the United States. While there are a significant number of addiction studies programs offered through an array of universities, up to now there have been none that offer a gambling-specific online certificate program.
This certificate may be applied toward certification by the American Academy of Health Care Providers in the Addictive Disorders.
