The key purpose of the workshop is to help build strategies and techniques that foster a relationship of trust between you and the employer. The content is designed to provide the participant with a fast and easy way to analyze a problem and determine the level and type of intervention, thus relieving some of the anxiety that accompanies making placements.

Over the past several years, the expectations of customers of the counselling system and of funding agencies have changed. This workshop focuses on techniques in problem gambling counseling, assessment strategies, and addressing the individual issues facing each client with a more holistic approach. Client choice is emphasized using problem gambling counseling methods to expand the employment horizon and, at the same time, deal with new challenges in today's employment market. This is done by focusing on employment outcomes where the employment candidate shares the responsibility of the problem gambling counseling process and assumes the accountability for getting and keeping a job.
