What is the Gambling Addiction Committee?
Problem gambling affects many areas of a gambler’s world including physical and mental health, familial and social relationships, employment, and finances. The impact of problem gambling on individuals, families and society has motivated many counsellors to educate themselves in supporting individuals seeking assistance.
This Committee seeks to:
- Ensuring professional growth through sharing training opportunities
- Support individuals seeking professional/industry designations
- Advocate for high standards of ethical practice
