Understanding Gambling Disorder: Its Development, Impacts and an Integrative Approach to Treatment

9:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon 

Presenters: Mayumi Okuda-Benavides, M.D.; Frank Grazioli, LMSW

Dr. Okuda-Benavides, attending psychiatrist at Columbia University Medical Center and director of the Columbia Gambling Disorders Clinic, and Frank Grazioli, licensed social worker, discuss the nature and prevalence of problem gambling behavior from its development and challenges to its detection, to its societal to clinical impacts. Using cases from clinical practice they demonstrate how flexible and integrative application of evidence-based interventions supports client motivation and treatment goals, and helps clients change, adopt, and adapt to new thinking and coping strategies to address their problem gambling. Consideration is given to clients with co-occurring substance and psychiatric disorders, including emphasis on comprehensive care through multidisciplinary collaboration.
