Presented By:
Dr. Lori Rugle, PhD, ICGC-II, BACC, ICGD
It has been consistently established that women begin gambling at later ages than men and are likely to have a more rapid progress from initiation of gambling to problematic gambling. However, there has been little written about older women who develop gambling problems. This workshop will consider the nature of gambling among older women and the unique vulnerabilities and issues that need to be addressed in prevention and treatment of gambling disorder in this unique group.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Participants will be able to identify 2 motivating factors for older women to gamble.
  2. Participants will be able to describe at least 2 vulnerabilities that contribute to the development of harmful gambling behaviors among older women
  3. Participants will be able to define at least 3 prevention and/or treatment issues that are most relevant to older women and gambling problems.
