The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

This training will provide an overview of Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs), will a focus on how the law works in Maryland. We aim to provide healthcare providers with the information they need to make informed decisions about whether to use this tool in their clinical practice. While healthcare providers can petition for ERPOs, most have not done so, and most do not even know that this tool exists. Attendees will emerge from this training with a better understanding of ERPOs and how they can help keep their patients safe from gun violence.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe what Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) are and how to decide when they are an appropriate tool.
  2. Discuss the Maryland’s ERPO law, and how it compares to ERPO laws in other states.
  3. Differentiate between ERPOs and other state-level firearm removal policies.
