Dr. Gilligan’s book “Violence” led me into a decade of studying shame and violence with an emphasis on the study of school shooters and other mas killers. He is an intellectual hero to me!
Thanks for your work, what great insights and touching compassion.
Dear Dr. Gilligan,
I studied your book On Violence years ago and have quoted you extensively on my own just finished ms. called
‘Under the Covers: Taking a Deeper Look at Violence.’
Thank you for leading the way and for your great insights and compassion.
