S3E25 / Gun Violence in America / The Psychology of Mass Shooters IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH with Dr. Celine Gounder

    • Science

Saying mass shooters are “evil” is overly simplistic and doesn’t do much to prevent them from killing. But understanding what they have in common, like suicidality, may help us intervene before it’s too late. Guests: Sue Klebold, the mother of one of the Columbine shooters, a suicide prevention activist, author of A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, and TEDMED 2016 speaker; Adam Lankford, Professor of Criminology at The University of Alabama; Jillian Peterson, Assistant Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Hamline University, and Co-Founder of the Violence Project; and J. Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist, and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego. | insicknessandinhealthpodcast.com
