|Title||Mass Shootings: Research and Lessons|
|Published in||Psychiatric Times|
|Abstract||Mass murder—the killing of 4 or more people at one location within one event—is a rare but appalling tragedy. The body of research on mass shootings is relatively small and hampered by the low base rate, questionable methods, and lack of data regarding thwarted events. Mass shootings are not new, but since the 1990s, they have taken on a different quality. This quality has been affected by cultural shift, social media, and enhanced media coverage.|
