Dr. Deborah Haskins Presents: Addressing Problem Gambling with Clients who have Experienced Sexual Abuse—Giving Gamblers Their Voices Back

June 3, 2020 EDT @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Sexual assault is one of the most harmful and negative impacts on one’s psychological, spiritual, and physical identities and increases risk for future problematic gambling behavior.  Many victims, including gamblers, suffer in silence and struggle to live with distressing memories. Evidence suggests that gambling treatment providers should ask about maltreatment history as part of their clinical assessment.  This session will provide knowledge/tools for creating a safe place for clients to support sexual abuse recovery with concurrent disordered gambling treatment so that gamblers reclaim their voices and experience hope.
