12:00 pm1:30 pm
This session is for anyone new to treating Gambling Disorder or for anyone interested in hearing cases of clinical treatment. The session will provide education on a problem gambling-related topic that matches the case to be discussed

A certified gambling clinician will be presenting on a 31 year old male who meets criteria for Gambling Disorder, Severe with a preferred form of gambling of Pokemon cards. She will review how the client meets criteria for the diagnosis given, how his previous treatment before going to the Cleveland VA was a barrier to his care, the treatment plan that was created, interventions utilized and progress in treatment. The clinician will also present on card breaking related to sports cards and Pokemon cards – what it is, how it operates, and where it takes place.
