Posted at 7:58 AM on April 17, 2007 by Bill Wareham
In the wake of the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, Kerri Miller and her guests discuss security procedures at colleges and universities. Also psychologists talk about how schools try to move forward after tragedy. Kerri's 9 a.m. guests include Doug McDonald, who leads a program to train Native Americans as psychologists at the University of North Dakota. Together with his students, he provided counseling in the wake of the shootings at Red Lake a year ago; Michael Dorn, executive director of Safe Havens International, based in Macon, Georgia; Greg Hestness; chief of police for the University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus; and Peter Sheras, professor of clinical psychology at the Curry School at the University of Virginia. He's also associate director of the Virginia Youth Violence Project.
At 10 a.m. the up-and-coming male choir, Cantus, performed and talked about their work and their new collaboration with poet Robert Bly. The show first aired March 9.
