This webinar will explore how practitioners working with families experiencing gambling harm can support parents to further improve outcomes for themselves and their children.

Register for this event

Clinical work, research and lived experience all show that parents’ gambling behaviour can have unintended impacts on children and others close to them. Referred to as gambling-related harm, these impacts can be physiological, psychological, social and relational.

Practitioners working in health, education and social and community services may encounter families experiencing gambling-related harm alongside a range of other complex circumstances. This can create uncertainty about how to practice in ways that also support the social and emotional wellbeing of children.

Drawing on lived experiences of gambling-related harm and the expertise of professionals working with families and children, this webinar will explore:

  • the links between gambling-related harm and other adversities
  • the adverse impacts of shame, stigma and stereotypes associated with gambling-related harm on parents, their parenting, and their children’s social and emotional wellbeing
  • how practitioners can support parents in ways that offer an alternative to shame and stigma to further improve outcomes for them and their children.

Presenters: Monya Murch, Rebecca Jenkinson and Christine.
