Counselling Dilemma: Gambling Addiction and Social Media
You have been working as a gambling addictions counsellor for Relationships Australia for the past 5 years. You are active in the community and attend regular network meetings in your local area. One evening at a regular meeting you run into a previous client, Kobe. Kobe informs you that he has been in recovery for three years and has now completed a counselling degree. Kobe has started a support group for recovering gambling addicts and has a very active social media profile. He invites you to join his Facebook group and to follow him on Twitter. He also shares that he feels that addictions are the result of people not having faith and that faith in God and Christianity is what got him through. He wants to help as many people as he can to find their faith and quit gambling.
How would you handle this situation? Would you engage with him on social media?
