Gambling Harm: Working with an integrated practice lens

, 10am-12.30pm Primary & Allied Health – Financial Counselling

This Financial Victoria run seminar will discuss case studies of best practice when referring and working in an integrated model to ensure the client receives a wholistic, best practice service. An integrated practice looks at outcomes for people experiencing gambling harm when connected with counsellors, housing, legal and family violence services. Attendees will hear from a financial counsellor, a therapeutic counsellor and a community service about what works best for the client and for us.

The session will also look at why integrated practice is so important in the work we do with those experiencing gambling harm (and their families).

Upon successful completion of this session participants will be able to:

- Understand what integrated practice is and incorporate best outcome strategies into their work

- Look at case work and integrated practice – pros and cons and discuss referrals and secondary consults to enhance opportunities for integrated practice.

- Have the conversations with services and clients to improve practice and outcomes when integrated practice isn’t effective.
