Inside the Mission to Stop Mass Shootings in America: A conversation with Mark Follman and Kristina Froling

Join us in welcoming author and Duke alumnus Mark Follman and school safety advocate Kristina Froling for a conversation about mass shootings and how these tragedies can be prevented through the growing field of behavioral threat assessment. Follman's acclaimed book, Trigger Points, chronicles the rise of this community-oriented solution and how expert teams work to intervene with troubled people and thwart targeted violence on school campuses and beyond.

In this evening's two-part program, Follman will share insights from his decade of research into the history, successes, and challenges of threat assessment, including examples of how teams have used the method to successfully head off tragedy. The program will also feature a talk by Kristina Froling, Executive Director of the Koshka Foundation and survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, whose experience and unique leadership role in school safety are among the stories featured in Trigger Points. Follman and Froling will join together in brief conversation for the conclusion of the program.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend.
