Objectives

This webinar provides even the most experienced clinicians with new understandings about older adults, especially Baby Boomers, and how they engage in gambling activities for leisure and healthy aging. Special Guest, Beth Mulvaney, a gerontology social worker, provides us with greater awareness about the role of the PCP, the difficulties with effective screening for problematic gambling and how to interpret behaviors that are commonly understood through dementia criteria. Learn more about when to have a direct vs indirect approach to talking about gambling with older adults. And finally, help older adults answer “what gets you up in the morning?”.
