Original Articles on Understanding Gun Violence from a Family Perspective
Gun violence has been a topic of recent considerable attention, and in response, NCFR called upon family scholars and practitioners to create original articles to aid in the understanding and prevention of gun violence from a family perspective.
The authors of these collections explore ways to respond as family scholars and practitioners, including direct interactions with individuals and families, improved training of professionals, and public policy recommendations.
The following articles are temporarily open to the general public:
The Intersection of Mental Illness and Gun Violence: Examining the Evidence to Guide Sound Public Policy — Allison Schroeder, Ph.D., LMFT, Deirdre Quinn, Ph.D., Samuel Allen, M.S., LMFT, and Elaine Anderson, Ph.D.
