Webinar- Dr. Heather Chapman Presents: Culturally Informed Treatment for Gambling Disorder

March 23, 2020 EDT @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Clock Hours/Continuing Education Units: 2

Cultural competence is an increased focus in mental health treatment in recent years, with specific requirements/guidelines included in JC, CARF and mental health professional associations. The DSM-5 has added a cultural formulation standard/interview to their latest edition, broadening the concept of culture with consideration of identity, conceptualization of distress, and factors related to psychosocial environment and functioning. This workshop will evaluate cultural aspects of gambling and gambling disorder within this DSM framework, aiming for a deeper/nuanced understanding of gambling within our culture, subcultures, and the personally defined culture of our clients.
