‘C-L psychiatrists in collaborative care are uniquely positioned to educate our colleagues’
There have been more than 200 instances of firearm violence involving children and teenagers in K-12 settings since the Columbine shootings in 1999. Victims of school shootings experience symptoms consistent with severe trauma and stress.
Today’s interactive workshop Firearm Violence in Schools, Collaborative Interventions to Combat Trauma and Tragedy will discuss a case involving mass firearm violence at school presenting to the emergency department for Psychiatry evaluation.
Delegates and speakers will also discuss conducting sensitive risk assessments and the role of the C-L psychiatrist in providing a therapeutic interaction in acute settings, including risks associating with ‘profiling’ adolescents.
In the wake of the 2007 Virginia Technical University shooting, the federal government commissioned the US Department of Education, Secret Service and FBI to study commonalities and make recommendations for preventing future tragedies. This report outlined three approaches including profiling, professional judgment, and automated decision-making along with inherent risks.
“C-L psychiatrists in collaborative care are uniquely positioned to educate our colleagues to conduct risk assessments for violence and providing psychoeducation to patients and their families,” say the organisers.
The workshop is today at 2:00-3:30 PM in Galleria 1. Speakers include:
Gerald Shiener, MD, DLFAPA, professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, Wayne State University School of Medicine.
Sharadie Soka, MD, consultation liaison fellow, The Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center.
Katherine Kelley, MD, outpatient chief psychiatry resident, Wayne State University Department of Psychiatry, Detroit Medical Center.
Omar Soubani, DO, resident psychiatrist, Wayne State University Department of Psychiatry, Detroit Medical Center.
