This presentation will detail new and existing policy options for social workers who may need to facilitate temporary, voluntary, or involuntary, firearm removal from clients at imminent risk of harming themselves or others. We will present the latest research on Extreme Risk Protection Orders and the voluntary Do Not Sell list laws and introduce resources designed for social workers and their clients to explain options for temporary firearm removal.
