Single-program approval is sought from other organizations such as bar associations, social workers' organizations and other agencies that certify clinicians.
Every year the ICRG sponsors a two-day conference in Las Vegas that brings together treatment providers, researchers, students, public health professionals, gaming industry professionals and regulators to learn about the latest research on gambling disorder and responsible gambling.
The ICRG offers a free webinar series annually. Past topics include Motivational Interviewing, CBT for Clients with Gambling Problems and Youth and College Gambling.
