Presenter: Jill Chonody, Ph.D, MSW, LCSW

Dr. Jill Chonody is a Professor of Social Work at Boise State University and Coordinator for the Master’s of Social Work Program. Her primary research interests include the study of attitudes toward older adults and how curriculum can address biases that promote social injustice against older people. Jill has presented her research both nationally and internationally and has over 70 published articles and book chapters. She has also written/co-written two books– Community Art: Creative Approaches to Practice, an overview of different arts-based interventions that can be used by social workers, community organizers, and nurses, amongst others. The second book, Social Work Practice with Older Adults, presents a framework for practice that merges social work values and ethics with the World Health Organization’s Active Aging policy and stresses a strengths-based approach that promotes self-determination.

1) Summarize latest information based on the most comprehensive database of mass shootings
2) Identify characteristics of mass shooters as it relates to their mental health, background, and importantly to recent and ongoing environmental stressors
