Oksanen, Atte; Kaltiala-Heino, Riittakerttu; Kiilakoski, Tomi; Lindberg, Nina
International Journal of Developmental Science, v8 n1-2 p37-41 2014
The systematic review by Sommer, Leuschner, and Scheithauer ("International Journal of Developmental Science" v8, n1-2, p3-24, 2014) includes 126 school shooting cases from 13 countries. This comprehensive review provides a valuable synthesis of a topic largely discussed in school shooting research: The role of bullying and peer rejection on the road from being a member of the school community to becoming a homicidal perpetrator in that same community. The aim of these authors is to bring forth new insight from Finnish research on school shootings and associated phenomena. They provide an additional perspective and suggestion for further developments in the field. Finnish school shootings and research on the associations on involvement in bullying and mental disorders are used here as examples.
