Process Pop-up: The Deeper Roots of Mass Shootings

July 21, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm PDT

Facilitated by Sheri D. Kling, PhD

Join a dynamic discussion on the deeper roots of mass shootings, inspired by process scholar Sheri Kling’s recent piece on the Cobb Institute blog Process in Praxis titled “Are Fragmentation, Trauma, and Demoralization at the Root of Mass Shootings?”

“Rather than just arguing about whether the problem stems from the individuals or the guns, I’d like to suggest that the roots may lie even deeper. And until we are willing to follow the threads all the way down, we will never find a way out of the crisis of mass shootings. I strongly believe that the roots of this problem are cultural fragmentation, an epidemic of trauma, and widespread demoralization. In other words, we are living in a sick society that is producing mass shootings out of its sickness.”
