According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, about 1% of American adults — nearly 3 million people — are pathological gamblers. Another 2%–3% have less serious but still significant problems, and as many as 15 million are at risk. To meet the growing demand for trained professionals in the area of gambling addictions, UMD Continuing Education (CE) and the North American Training Institute (NATI) collaborated on a unique online training program, Studies in Gambling Addiction: Counseling the Pathological Gambler.
This training provides specific knowledge and advanced clinical understanding as it relates to the identification, diagnosis, referral, and treatment of individuals with a gambling addiction. Completion of the 60-hour training may be applied toward certification by the American Academy of Health Care Providers in Addictive Disorders.

What people are saying:
I had a lot of reservations about signing up for my first online course, but by the end of the Session One those reservations completely evaporated. By the end of Session Three, based on what I had learned, I was able to devise some worksheets for a client to complete. I am not sure if it was he or I who was more surprised at the revelations which came forth...
I haven't been this excited about learning in a long time.
