At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least three recent trends in youth video gaming and gambling;
  • Identify risk and protective factors, as well as specific youth vulnerable populations for problem “gaming” and gambling;
  • Describe three methods of addressing problematic gaming and gambling in their work.
