Workshop to tackle gambling
MISSION Australia's Gambling Smart Project is calling for participants in a free two-day workshop.
The program is designed to identify Aboriginal community and health workers who would benefit from training to identify gambling issues within their community or with their clients.
Project coordinator Sheree Drylie said the workshop will cover a range of issues associated with gambling.
“We will look at the forms of gambling activity, signs and symptoms of problem gambling, risk and protective factors and impacts on health and relationships, as well as types of therapeutic interventions, screening tools and where to find help,” she said.
Participants who complete the full two-day course will receive a certificate of participation, lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
The workshop will be held at Twin Towns Club and Resort on April 12-13.
