On June 17, 2015, Dylann Roof killed nine people at an Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. In this talk, Dr Clare Allely will look to show how we can understand Roof's progression towards mass shooting. She will discuss the techniques professionals use to identify individuals who may be vulnerable and at-risk, and talk about interventions and support that can help prevent such extreme violence.
