This webinar explores the various ways in which clinicians may be involved in the legal system related to gambling disorders. For many, it’s not “if” but “when” they will interact with attorneys, probation/parole, and court-ordered treatment requests. This webinar reviews how to interact, educate, and provide written documentation to judges, attorneys, and the legal system on behalf of individuals with gambling disorders.
