A Content Analysis on the Psychological Impacts of School Shootings: Current Themes and Directions for Future Research
Listen to the authors describe their project: https://bit.ly/3alQOhE This project was awarded 1st place in the Research Project category and 2nd place for the Sustainability Award. The presented study is a content analysis of 29 articles related to school shootings. An analysis of the data suggests that slightly more articles were nonempirical rather than empirical, there were similar rates of representation based on sample characteristics, and most were focused on the United States. Furthermore, trauma, school policies, post-shooting interventions, and specific shooting events were the most common topics within four primary factors assessed in this study. Findings suggest important implications for future research. **Project references are available in a separate file below.
