Part 1: How to Work with Community Groups Regarding Problem Gambling Prevention Efforts

Overview: Problem gambling is a community-wide problem that needs to be addressed with a community-wide approach. The training will utilize the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) for identifying a planned and thoughtful approach to addressing problem gambling.

 ■Understand that prevention is a data-driven process
 ■Identify strategies for communities to combat problem gambling
 ■Infuse problem gambling prevention into current efforts
Part 2: Environmental Prevention Strategies for Problem Gambling
While it is important to address problem gambling prevention at an individual level through activities such as education and information dissemination, it is also important to examine problems from an environmental level. This training will examine various areas of the community that can impact an individual and his or her behavior by focusing on community norms, access and availability, media messages, and policy and enforcement.
 ■Understand the norms of the community
 ■Examine the impact that media has at the community level
 ■Identify evidence-based strategies for addressing problem gambling at a community-wide level
