Event Banner
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

Thursday, January 26th from 1:00 PM ET to 3:00 PM ET (Virtual)


Gambling has been expanded in Massachusetts in recent years, and many communities are not aware of the importance of using a public health approach to address problem gambling, the potential harms associated with it and populations disproportionally affected. This introductory training will explore the importance of protecting and improving the health of people and their communities, identify problem gambling concepts and terminology, and will categorize variables associated with an increased risk or a lower likelihood of problem gambling.


At the end of this training participants will be able to:

  • Apply a public health approach to problem gambling
  • Describe levels of gambling and their associated risk
  • Identify problem gambling risk and protective factors
  • Determine groups at disproportionate risk for developing problem gambling
  • Explore intersections between problem gambling and other behavioral health issues

Upon completion of the training and receipt of your evaluation survey, participants of A Public Health Approach to Problem Gambling Training will be emailed a certificate of completion. You are welcome to use the certificate, along with the description and learning objectives, to apply for other state-level CEs that are appropriate for you.

The Massachusetts Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling Prevention (MCOEPGP) provides capacity building, training and resource development services to address the prevention of problem gambling and related health issues such as the prevention of substance misuse, suicide and violence. The MCOE PGP approach is rooted in public health and utilizes the social-ecological model – incorporating the individual, family, and community – as a framework for its work. This approach is in alignment with evidence-based practices that require authentic community engagement, the use of an explicit equity lens and addressing the economic and social conditions that influence the health of people and communities, known as the social determinants of health.
