Langman will address gun violence and school shootings on March 4 at 5 p.m. in the University Hall Amphitheater
Friday, February 01, 2013
Langman’s research on school shooters has been cited in congressional testimony on Capitol Hill, and he has been interviewed about school shooters by media outlets in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America and the Middle East.
In the wake of the mass, fatal shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December, Langman’s recommendations on preventing school shootings were presented by the head of the American Psychological Association to President Obama.
Langman holds an M.A. in counseling psychology from Lesley and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Lehigh University. His book, Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters, has been translated into German, Finnish and Dutch.

Langman has provided training on preventing school shootings to several thousand professionals in law enforcement, mental health, and education. He is also a poet and a playwright.
Free and open to the public, Langman’s lecture will take place at 5 p.m.
in the 2nd floor Amphitheater of University Hall, followed by a
reception. University Hall is located on Lesley's Porter Campus at 1815
Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
Dr. Langman’s talk is part of a Gun Series presented by the Office of Lesley President Joseph B. Moore to engage the community in a conversation on gun control in the wake of the school shootings in Connecticut and amid renewed national attention to the epidemic of gun violence.
Lesley hosted the state's most prominent gun control advocate, John Rosenthal, on February 5, for the first lecture in the series. Read coverage of Rosenthal's talk here.
The third and final speaker in the Gun Series is Harvard Professor and New Yorker staff writer Jill Lepore on Monday, April 1 at 4:00 pm in University Hall Amphitheater.
