This event has ended, but if you think it looks interesting, you might want to check out our other upcoming talks. Our speaking events take place monthly in Liverpool city centre and are free to attend.
Dr Clare Allely - The Psychology of Mass Shooters

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.

Dr Clare Allely is a Reader in Forensic Psychology at the University of Salford and an affiliate member of the Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre (GNC) at Gothenburg University, Sweden. Dr Allely holds a PhD in psychology from the University of Manchester, having previously graduated with an MA (hons.) in Psychology from the University of Glasgow, an MRes in Psychological Research Methods from the University of Strathclyde and an MSc degree in Forensic Psychology from Glasgow Caledonian University
