The Problem Gambling Training Partnership is an unprecedented statewide initiative to provide training on assessment and treatment of gambling disorder to social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychoanalysts throughout the state.
Funded by the New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, the New York Council on Problem Gambling has partnered with the National Association of Social Workers - New York State Chapter, the New York Mental Health Counselors Association, the New York Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis to form the Problem Gambling Training Partnership.
The program will provide professionals with evidence-based practices for treating gambling disorder delivered through in-person training institutes, webinar and print materials, and clinical support. Training programs will begin in May and be offered regionally throughout the state. The five professional associations partnering in this effort represent nearly 20,000 counseling professionals across New York State.
