gun-violenceGUN VIOLENCE
“APA’s new report, “Gun Violence Prediction, Prevention, and Policy,” consolidates psychological research findings on precursors to shootings and highlights prevention strategies. The seminal report identifies the need for both primary and secondary prevention programs to keep communities safe from gun violence. (Experts on the panel producing the report include Curry faculty member, Dr. Dewey Cornell.)

The report found that in making predictions about the risk for mass shootings, “there is no consistent psychological profile or set of warning signs that can be used reliably to identify such individuals in the general population.” For this reason, primary violence prevention is critical. —APA
