The new Children' Hospital module open house for professionals on June 4th will feature an international expert on school shooters. Clinical Director of KidsPeace Pennsylvania Residential Programs Dr. Peter Langman has been studying the psychology of school shooters since Columbine and recently released Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters, a compelling study of youth who have been involved in school shootings over the past decade. Dr. Langman has become a frequent spokesperson on the subject on television and radio, as well as in print. At the open house, he will be signing copies of his book and discussing issues concerning school shooters and risk assessment development to identify potential shooters. Langman and other KidsPeace Children's Hospital leadership will guide visitors through the new module and point out safety and treatment advances that set this facility apart in the treatment of children in crisis. The event will take place from 4:00 p.m until 7:00 p.m. at the Children's Hospital in Orefield, PA. For more information on the open house, please call Laurel Youse at 610-799-8397 or email her at laurel.youse@kidspeace.org.
