It’s Look Back Week on BTR!

On today’s episode of Third Eye Weekly, we review the “Best Music No One Told You To Like in 2012.”

And later, we look back to one of the biggest stories of the year: the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. While the initial shock of what occurred in Newtown on December 14th is now beginning to fade, the conversations regarding gun control, mental health care, and violence in the media continue to rage. However, the question of whether or not a set of laws can prevent these heinous and unpredictable rampages remains.

Our guest today, John M. Harris Jr. MD, MBA, co-authored an article in the June 2012 issue of American Journal of Public Health titled “Rampage Violence Requires a New Type of Research.” The article argues that the current discipline-based violence research is unsuited to understanding acts rampage violence — such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Dr. Harris joins us to discuss the article and his call for a more comprehensive, transdisciplinary approach to the study of rampage violence.
