Event description

Description

Free CPD session on the topic of youth gambling and problem gambling.

The training is open to practitioners specifically working in services that support parents,carers and families.

The training will support participants to:

  • better understand what problem gambling is and its relationship with other risk-taking behaviours

  • develop their understanding of the impact of problem gambling on young people, parents and families

  • strengthen their ability to raise awareness of gambling-related harm, prevention and harm reduction advice

  • increase their knowledge of the resources and services ( such as Fast Forwards's Gambling Education Toolkit) to signpost individuals that need specialised support

  • explore ways to include gambling in the range of issues that services already address

  • strengthen their skills and confidence to deliver gambling education and prevention activities

  • create bespoke informative materials for their service users


    This training is part of Fast Forward's new Gambling Education Hub: http://www.fastforward.org.uk/projects/gedhub/

    The mission of the Hub is to make it possible for every young person in Scotland to have access to gambling education and prevention opportunities. The Hub regularly organises regional CPD events across Scotland. Additional sessions and bespoke trainings can be arranged according to need and demand.
