As opportunities continue to rapidly increase for gambling across Maryland and our country, it has become increasingly essential for behavioral health providers to improve their capacity and capability of addressing and treating gambling problems. This virtual training series will provide those working in behavioral health a professional development experience to learn effective ways of working with gamblers and their families. In support of the “No Cost Problem Gambling Treatment” initiative launched by the Maryland Department of Health Behavioral Health Administration, this four part clinical training is an in-depth basic program which builds the capability of providers to deliver problem gambling treatment for individuals and their families.
Providers who have had no or little problem gambling/gambling disorder clinical training are encouraged to attend this program, especially those providers and private practitioners participating in the Problem Gambling Reimbursement Program administered by the Maryland Department of Health Behavioral Health Administration.
NOTE: The agenda for this 12-hour, four-part clinical training program builds onto itself. Mandatory attendance is required on the previous three-hour program to receive CEUs for attendance on the next program. Please refer to the Agenda and Continued Education Units section for further details.
