Hosts: Oregon Problem Gambling Services & Oregon Council on Problem Gambling

Legalization, cultural acceptance and scientific interest in cannabis is rapidly expanding throughout the United States. As cannabis gains a stronger presence in society, the relationship between cannabis and gambling must be more closely examined. Essentially every aspect of gambling activity can and will be impacted by the presence (or absence) of cannabis. A few examples of critical issues to be explored include: the current landscape of how cannabis and gambling behavior interact, medical and psychological implications in the treatment setting and best practices for the treatment of cannabis use disorder among those with gambling disorder.

Amanda McCormick, PhD: Addressing Problem Gambling in Correctional Institutions – Oregon Problem Gambling Learning Series
Sep 17 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Hosts: Oregon Problem Gambling Services & Oregon Council on Problem Gambling

This workshop will examine the various ways that problem gambling and criminal behavior are related with a focus on the treatment and programming implications for correctional institutions. Previous research has identified that inmate populations are substantially more likely to demonstrate symptoms of problem gambling prior to, during, and following their incarceration as compared to members of the general population. Research also suggests that gambling problems are a risk factor for re-offending following incarceration. However, the theoretical links between problem gambling and criminality are not well understood, which limits the ability to effectively provide corrective programming during periods of incarceration. This workshop will review the rates of problem gambling in Oregon Correctional facilities, present several possible explanations for the association between problem gambling and criminal behaviors, and review some of the screening or assessment tools that can be implemented in clinical settings.

In this webinar, Dr. Cash will explain the importance of maintaining limits on screen use and provide ideas on how to do that, including how to stay engaged with your children in ways that will meet their needs. She will help you understand when the line is crossed from heavy use to addiction, the impacts on child development from heavy use, and what to do when things have spun out of control.
