The Violence Vortex™
What causes a generally prosocial person to commit an act of targeted violence?
We all have stressors in our lives, and we all use coping skills to deal with the stress. Many of our coping skills are healthy: exercise, meditation, hobbies, talking with family and friends, etc. Some of our coping skills are unhealthy: excessive alcohol consumption, illicit drug use, isolation/withdrawal, etc.
