Interviews Could Help Prevent School Shootings

Researchers in the Division of Psychiatry recently developed a way to assess middle and high school students’ risk of violent behavior at schools. The study included 25 students with behavioral changes from 15 schools in Ohio and Kentucky. The study results were published in July 2016 in Psychiatric Quarterly.

Drew H. Barzman, MD, principal investigator and Director of the Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry Service, says that the purpose of the study was to pilot a standardized, sensitive, and rapid method to identify students at high risk for physical aggression and violence toward others at schools.
