Abacus Counselling Training and Supervision: Training and Education Modules and Courses
A number of brief, half to full-day training modules have been developed to support providers both clinically and administratively (providing training and support for the CLIC data collection system).
Orientation modules for those new to gambling treatment are provided on request, and also clinical intervention modules for treatment practitioners are available on request.
ABACUS can provide training by arrangement to providers at their own location. Also by arrangement, some relevant gambling-related additional training sessions can be delivered to include several providers in a collective environment as required, (this also occurs when problem gambling forums are held in different areas across New Zealand).
ABACUS has also developed and been granted approval by NZQA under section 251 of the Education Act 1989 to provide a Certificate of Addiction and Mental Health Supervision (Level 6).
