Participants will have hands-on experience and knowledge in how to effectively implement the Stacked Deck curriculum. Stacked Deck is an evidence-based program designed to prevent problem gambling in grades 9-12; however, has been taught in grades 6-8. Stacked Deck is listed on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. Stacked Deck is intended to change attitudes towards gambling based on the premise that attitudes are best predictors for behavior. It increases knowledge about gambling and the odds of winning, corrects beliefs about gambling and prevents or decreases the frequency of gambling behavior.
