As we look for ways to prevent gun violence, I invited everyone in the Legislature to attend a very informative discussion on the topic from an expert. Milwaukee area psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffrey Taxman, has studied the behaviors of shooters and how to prevent them from acting.
Dr. Jeffrey Taxman is a practicing psychiatrist and trained psychoanalyst with over 35 years experience. In addition to serving as the Medical Director at Mequon Clinical Associates, Dr. Taxman is an Associate Clinical Faculty Member of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Department of Psychiatry where he teaches theory and clinical technique to psychiatry residents.
Last year, the International Journal of Applied Psychoanalytic Studies Journal published an article by Dr. Jeffrey Taxman on his theory called “Tri-Vector Model.” This model helps to better understand the forces that may generate gun violence, particularly active shooter events.
