Murder/Suicide and the role of Mental Health in Workplace Violence Prevention @ Webinar
Dec 9 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Are murderers and perpetrators of murder/suicide (terrorists) crazy?  Can we actually prevent the next violent attack or are we relegated to responding/reacting to violence? After Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School before taking his own life, in just the past week a 14-year-old boy murdered a beloved teacher in Massachusetts and a 12-year-old boy shoots and kills a beloved teacher in Nevada.  The Navy Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, shot and killed 12 people before he was killed (suicide by cop?).
The most lethal of all aggressors, perpetrators of murder/suicide, are increasing at an alarming rate.  Are we creating a society of sociopaths?  We have lived under the illusion that mental health assessment, profiling and even threat assessment can reliably prevent the next shooting but history has told a different story.

Speaker:
John D. Byrnes, Founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management will address these questions and offer reliable prevention solutions.  John D. Byrnes has over 4,700 Linkedin Security and Law Enforcement Connections with over 2,900 endorsements.
