Marina Shakour Haber, author of Dream a Better Dream says they are and the public is missing the true cause of mass shootings

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- After the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left 17 people dead, talk about gun control and the inadequacies of the mental health system has skyrocketed; there have been calls for raising the age for buying an AR-15 like the one 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz used in the shooting and some companies have stopped selling the rifles. And while author Marina Shakour Haber welcomes such moves, she believes the public and the media are missing some important parts of the discussion: the connection between antidepressant use and violent behavior and the role smartphones are playing in isolating young people and creating a generation of anxious, depressed individuals.

The author of the new book, Dream a Better Dream: Change Your Mind to Save the World, Shakour Haber has done a great deal of research on mass shooters. She can talk about:

  • The real reason why so many people are prescribed antidepressants instead of talk therapy that might help them more.
  • Ways smartphones are altering people's brain chemistry.
  • Why the Las Vegas shooter Steven Paddock's prescriptions for Vicodin and Valium matter.
  • Why the number of mass shootings have tripled since 2006.
  • Why restricting gun ownership without placing restrictions on big pharma is only half the battle.
  • Solutions to these seemingly intractable problems: changing individuals from within through meditation and yoga taught in schools and other ways to build connection and reduce anxiety.
