Understanding Why Kids Kill with Dr. Peter Langman One Step Ahead with Tom Czyz

    • Society & Culture

"You can't explain something that's extraordinarily rare, by pointing to something that's extraordinarily common." - Dr. Peter Langman

In this episode, I talk with Dr. Peter Langman who has spent more than 20 years studying the underlying causes of school shootings. While the media portrays bullying as the primary cause, Dr. Langman argues that there are generally much deeper issues behind kids killing their peers. Join us for an honest conversation about active shooters in schools, what parents can do to pay more attention to their kids, and what steps schools can take to better protect their students, faculty, and staff.

Dr. Langman is a psychologist whose research on school shooters has received international recognition, with 500 media interviews in 31 countries. He has conducted trainings on school safety for Homeland Security, the FBI National Academy in Quantico, and FBI Headquarters, as well as organizations and school districts around the country. He is a researcher with Police Foundation and the National Threat Assessment Center of the United States Secret Service. His work has been cited in congressional testimony on Capitol Hill and his recommendations on school safety were presented to President Obama by the CEO of American Psychological Association.
