Presentation: Slaughter of the Innocents: Subgroups, Treatments, and Trends

At the conclusion of this presentation, you will:

  • Understand why the spree killers of children have not been characterized psychiatrically
  • Perceive why anyone in a subgroup of victims, mourners, witnesses, or rethinkers may develop symptoms of PTSD
  • Consider using the strategies “abreaction”, “context”, and “correction” in treating groups or individuals exposed to the mass killings of children and adolescents
  • Begin thinking about suggestions for handling mass killings, such as a ban on guns at home (American Academy of Pediatrics) or    the reporting of all psychiatrically disordered people (National Rifle Association
