This year we co-hosted the Forum with Gambling Research Exchange Ontario (GREO). The forum focus was “bringing together clinicians and community partners to reduce harms from gambling and gaming”.
Whether you have been supporting people with gambling problems for years or you are new to the field, changes in the gambling landscape, emerging technologies, the blurring of gaming and gambling, and new insights into concurrent disorders all indicate a need for updated approaches to treatment and community engagement.
