The population of the United States is graying more and more every year. Our aging population is especially susceptible to issues that stem from problem gambling. During this virtual presentation via Zoom, we will review the unique circumstances that make seniors vulnerable to problem gambling, as well as signs and symptoms of problem gambling that can alert friends, family members, and caregivers that a loved one could be in trouble. Problem gambling is something that can be treated! Resources for prevention and treatment of problem gambling will also be discussed.
FREE training- no CEUs or certificates will be issued for this event.
