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.
This certificate may be applied toward certification by the American Academy of Health Care Providers in the Addictive Disorders.
This invaluable training provides education on the core features of a gambling addicted client and charts the progress of a gambling addiction. The webinar includes case examples of gambling addictive behaviors and a presentation on comorbidities by Dr. Jon Grant, world-renowned expert in the field of gambling addiction. Dr. Grant is a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Chicago.
