(4/14/2022) Join us when Award-winning journalist Mark Follman examines his book TRIGGER POINTS: Inside the Mission to Stop Mass Shootings in America. Mark Follman gained exclusive access to leaders of the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Unit and top mental health experts who pioneered the field, and he immersed in confidential threat-assessment programs nationwide, including a leading model created for K-12 schools after Columbine. Follman says, it’s time to go beyond all the thoughts and prayers, misguided blame on mental illness, and dug-in disputes over the Second Amendment. The emerging field of behavioral threat assessment, with its synergy of mental health and law enforcement expertise, focuses on circumstances and behaviors leading up to planned acts of violence in order to identify warning signs that offer a chance for constructive intervention before it's too late.
