Lesley University will welcome psychologist and author Dr. Peter Langman to offer his insights and research on school shootings.
Langman’s research on school shooters has been cited in congressional testimony on Capitol Hill, and he has been interviewed about school shooters by media outlets in United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, and the Middle East.
In the wake of the mass, fatal shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December, Langman’s recommendations on preventing school shootings were presented by the head of the American Psychological Association to President Obama.
His book, "Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters," has been translated into German, Finnish and Dutch.
Langman has provided training on preventing school shootings to several thousand professionals in law enforcement, mental health, and education. He is also a poet and a playwright.
