Senseless: How Attacks Have Great Meaning to the Attackers

Leave a comment

We see school attacks as crazy, worthless…senseless (and that’s the right way to see it).

However, the school attacker doesn’t see it the same way. To him, his act of violence has great purpose, meaning, and is far from senseless. The hard part for us is that we must uncover the real meaning behind the attack or we won’t be able to implement the right intervention plan.

While it’s not easy to do, it is critical that we do it because it gives us the best chance to prevent violence.
