What About the Families?: Helping Partners and Families of an Individual with Gambling Disorder

  • Health Management Systems of America 601 Washington Boulevard Detroit, MI, 48226 United States (map)

Course Description:

The discovery or disclosure of a gambling problem in a family can be devastating. In the aftermath, family members may feel alienated, embarrassed, or afraid of being judged by others. Secrets, lies, and deceptions used by gamblers to maintain gambling activities can cause partners to feel confused, hurt, angry, and uncertain. Understanding the concept of boundaries and how they apply to relationships and the family is an important aspect of recovery for those with a gambling disorder. This training will focus on understanding partner and family issues, techniques, and resources for working with the family/partner, including the UCLA Gambling Studies Program workbook, "Helping Partners in a Relationship with a Problem Gambler."
