This webinar will provide an overview of the role mental health professionals can play in promoting safety around potential gun violence, including screening approaches and what to be aware of in working with clients/patients who may be at risk; materials and information that can be offered; and legal remedies and issues relevant to professionals, such as the Gun Violence Restraining Order, Welfare and Institutions Code section 5150, and confidentiality. *CME Event (must be attended live by registered attendee for duration of webinar to obtain CME)
