Stress and its impact affect us all. Stress is related to all major health problems in the United States, including gambling disorders and other addictions. This workshop will increase participants’ understanding of stress and teach effective stress management tools and techniques to help gambling disordered clients. In this webinar, helping professionals will learn how stress depletes our resources on a physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual level. Participants will learn how to rejuvenate and restore our energy in all of these areas. Research has demonstrated that using Mindfulness based practices in recovery increases clients’ success. Learn effective strategies for reducing stress, improving treatment outcomes, and enhancing the lives of those we serve.

Attendees should be able to:

  • Increase their understanding of stress and the impact that it has on our lives and our clients;
  • Learn about the relationship between stress and gambling problems; and
  • Help clients develop effective strategies to cope with stress and enhance their potential for success in recovery.
