  • 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm: Debrief. Mike and Jake discuss red flag laws, the need for clinicians to understand gun culture, Rob and Mike discuss their anecdotes from the road related to why gun owners are afraid to seek help, and Q&A from attendees. Jake closes with the imperative from Pirelli’s book about practitioners needing to become competent in this culture.

At the end of this course, attendees will:

  • improve their understanding of the stigma related to mental health care among gun owners;
  • learn how to validate emotional experiences of gun owners;
  • increase their empathy and understanding related to gun culture;
  • improve their understanding of guns, broadly, including types, classes, and uses;
  • gain new information on expected standards and need for clinical contributions to the field;
  • understand “red flag laws” and clinician responsibility and ethical scope in Nevada.
