Speaker Name: Susanne Irving

Title of presentation: The changing world of gambling
Technology is not only changing the face of gambling, but also the face of gambling therapy.
The internet has not only changed who gambles, but how, where and why people are gambling and the speed with which gambling problems may begin to manifest.
Even though gambling has made more headline news in recent years, problem gambling has largely remained a hidden addiction. Whether you are working face-to-face or online, you may unknowingly be seeing clients whose life has been impacted by online gambling.
Susanne has worked with those affected by problem gambling since 2004 and will share from her experience as an online counsellor.
