About the Topic

The presenter will discuss an approach with the primary focus on applying ethical principles related to cultural competency to address the unique sub-culture of gun ownership; how understanding the Veteran’s and family’s relationship with weapons and guns can increase vs. decrease safety in the home; and how better understanding of the laws and regulations around weapons can increase provider’s ability to influence safety with Veterans and families. The goal is for providers to feel more confident combining cultural competency tools with motivational interviewing concepts to facilitate “global safety” discussions with Veterans and their families.
