The problem gambling webinar series from the Responsible Gaming Association of New Mexico continues on FridayMay 21, 2021 from 11am-12:30 pm MDT. This is the first of a four-part series on ethics and problem gambling. Please mark your calendar for the other dates: June 11, July 16, and August 13; each session will be 11am-12:30 pm MDT.

When we embody what we learn, that’s when it sinks in. This webinar, “Embodying Ethics: Gambling, Trauma, and Music?!” takes us on the ethics path using case studies of gambling clients, their partners, and families, and utilizes breathing and music to anchor in what we will learn.

Our presenter will be Daniel Blackwood, LPCC, ICGCII-BACC.

Attendees will earn 1.5 gambling-specific CEUs for each session (counselors and social workers). If you attend all 4, you’ll receive 6 CEUs. You do not, of course, have to attend all sessions.

Attendance is free but registration is required and space is limited.

EFT is an important tool in the therapist’s toolbox to work with couples, families, and individuals. This is especially true for the problem gambler who has disconnected from feeling and is often estranged from their partner and family. As recovery occurs, they need support to self-regulate and process emotion, to repair significant relationships, and to re-attach safely.

The Responsible Gaming Association of New Mexico is pleased to offer two sessions in our webinar training for treatment providers. These sessions will focus on “The Key to Working with Gambling Problems: A Model of Supervision with Case Examples”.

Each session will provide 1.5 Supervision CEUs. The first webinar will be held on November 13, 2020 from 11am-12:30pm MST and will focus on the MONEY portion of gambling problems.

The second event, December 11, 2020 from 11am-12:30pm MST, will cover the LIES related to gambling problems.

Attendees will earn 1.5 Supervision CEUs for each event. Attendance is free but registration is required.

Speakers will be Chris Anderson, LMFT, ICGC-II-BACC; Chris Goodrich, PhD, LPCC, ICGC-II; and Daniel Blackwood, LPCC, ICGC-II-BACC.

We hope to resume our in-person annual conference in August 2021, but until then, we will offer an excellent lineup of speakers in online webinars.
