Stage 2 for Prevention Professionals builds upon the basic concepts from Stage 1 and provides participants the opportunity to apply community-based prevention skills to problem gambling issues in their communities. The training will provide a cursory overview of the history of prevention and problem gambling prevention in Ohio including funding sources, strategies, and collaboration with partners in operation and regulation.

Participants will examine local data to establish a problem of practice for problem gambling prevention and determine what resources currently exist in their communities to address the problem. Participants will engage in independent work, breakout rooms, and large group discussions to examine organizational policies, community policies, and school policies and create guidance to advocate for change.

Who Should Attend:
Professionals in the fields of prevention, policy, education; county boards; community members; recovery advocates; partners in operation and regulation; and anyone wanting to learn more.
