The PA Psychological Association is hosting an educational seminar in partnership with WellSpan Philhaven and The Milton Hershey School called, "School Shooters: Who Are They and How Can They Be Identified?" at the Milton Hershey School, Purcell Friendship Hall, on Friday, March 8, 2019. PA Psychological Association member and leader, Peter Langman, Ph.D., will be presenting the seminar.

Registration cost is $149.00 (Includes morning coffee, a copy of Dr. Langman's newest book, School Shooters: Understanding High School, College, and Adult Perpetrators and lunch). Act 48 credit is available.

Ever since the attack at Columbine High School in 1999, school safety has been a national concern. The ongoing occurrence of school shootings is a critical issue for those in positions to assist with maintaining safety and well-being of those in school settings. Knowing the warning signs of impending violence is essential for identifying potential perpetrators before there is a mass attack. Best practices regarding threat assessment and the prevention of school shootings will be discussed. Special thanks to WellSpan Philhaven for support of the speaker and Milton Hershey School for hosting this event!

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is open to psychologists, educators, school administrators, public safety officers, mental health professionals and anyone who has an interest in the subject. All are welcome!
