Safe Communities: Violence as a Public Health Crisis

Register

43rd Annual Erich Lindemann Memorial Lecture

Sponsored by The Erich Lindemann Memorial Lecture Committee
In cooperation with William James College, McLean Hospital Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education, and The North Suffolk Mental Health Association Board of Directors

Speakers: Robert Kinscherff, PhD, JD; Nancy Rappaport, MD; & Jaime Barrett, PhD
Moderator: David G. Satin, MD, DLFAPA

We are living through an epidemic of acts of major violence in our community, heightening fear, revulsion, and anger. This is a public health issue, an assault on our communities, rather than many individual acts. We struggle with responses that range from building defenses against these acts and actors to dealing preventively with the conditions and maladaptation that leads to this violence. Our speakers bring much research, experience, and thought to this catastrophe, and will help us to understand and respond.

Specific learning objectives:

  1. Discuss the epidemic of acts of major violence in our community that are heightening fear, revulsion, and anger.
  2. Describe the public health issue and how it is an assault on our communities, rather than many individual acts.
  3. Examine the responses that range from building defenses against these acts and actors to dealing preventively with the conditions and maladaptation that leads to this violence.
