Event description
An Introduction to Young People and Problem Gambling Workshop for Professionals Who Work With and Support Young People Aged 11-19 years.

About this Event

This free training has been put together by GamCare, the UK's leading charity supporting those affected by gambling (whether problem gamblers or affected others). Having identified education as a key part of preventing harm as a result of gambling, we offer an introductory workshop for professionals who support young people to gain useful knowledge and practical skills to apply in their youth-facing roles.

Content includes:

- Definition, nature and incidence of problem gambling in young people

- How to screen for at risk young people

- Where to signpost young people to access support and information

The training is a valuable addition to any safeguarding, mental health or support worker oriented skills profile.

We encourage all youth-facing practitioners, family support workers, teaching staff and anyone with interaction with young people and their families to add this training to their CPD.

The training will be delivered by Zoom and details will be sent just before the event.

If you have any questions or you'd like to discuss anything regarding this training please feel free to contact me by email on emma.klein@aquarius.org.uk or by phone on 07789 945 190.
