|This conference will explore what role emerging science can play in predicting and preventing rampage killings now or in the foreseeable future.
As the fifth in a series of biennial conferences on brain science and the law, it will bring together many of the nation’s leading researchers, thinkers, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and perspectives to discuss the factors (psychological, social, environmental, genetic) that lead to rampage killings, the ability of science to predict such violence, and possible treatments or prevention strategies.
The conference will educate judges, attorneys, social workers, educators, care providers, and other interested persons on these scientific developments and how they can be used to identify and treat troubled youths who may be at risk for engaging in rampage violence.
