This webinar explores the many ways self-help programs can help clients with gambling disorders. We discuss the various types of self-help options, not just 12-Step, that can assist our clients in their recovery from gambling. We explore what it means to be a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) and how clinicians can develop a partnership in a way that further supports their clients in recovery. We explore new ways to use technology to meet the younger generations that may not seek support in the traditional ways. Join us with a special guest, Jeff Wasserman, ICGC-I, CPRS for this webinar.
