The subject of gambling and its associated harms is currently a hot topic and is acknowledged by experts as a serious health issue with far reaching consequences. In the UK, we are seeing huge cultural shifts in the gambling context with the gender gap rapidly decreasing.
The evidence suggests that more and more women are accessing online gambling activities and putting themselves at risk of developing gambling problems. The evidence also firmly points out that women are significantly more likely to be affected by somebody else’s gambling problem than men, placing women at risk of being negatively affected by gambling related harm – statistics show that 80% of affected others calling the National Gambling Helpline are women.
To help with this growing issue, GamCare provide a free CPD accredited 2 hour online training session on the topic of women and gambling related harm. The training aims to:
Increase awareness of gambling-related harm, including hidden harms;
Boost confidence in having discussions about gambling with those you work with;
Raise awareness of support and treatment available to those who are experiencing gambling-related harm;
Increase confidence to screen, signpost and refer individuals experiencing gambling harms.
