by: NCRG Staff | Mar 29, 2016

Did you miss the 2015 NCRG Conference on Gambling Addiction?  No problem! The NCRG Webinar Series is presenting two of the top-ranked speakers in the next two sessions!

Many disordered gamblers started gambling at a young age and that’s why it’s important to address gambling by children and adolescents. On April 7, 2016, Duke University Professor Scott Huettel will present his innovative research in the webinar, “Rethinking Teenage Behavior: New Research on Adolescents’ Risky Choices.”  Dr. Huettel’s investigation reveals that young people are actually more rational in their economic choices than assumed, although still in need of guidance in their decision-making processes. The webinar is scheduled for 2 - 3:30 p.m. EDT. Click here to register for this free webinar.

On May 5, 2016, Dr. Andrew Kayser, University of California, San Francisco, will present, “Waiting is the Hardest Part: Impulsivity, Addiction and the Brain.” He will discuss the latest research on cognitive control, dopamine and impulsivity – and the impact that the brain has on addictions and gambling disorder. The webinar is scheduled for 2 - 3:30 p.m. EDT. Click here to register for this free webinar.
