Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience Grand Rounds

Thursday, 14 November, 2019

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience will present Grand Rounds from 8 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13, in Lecture Hall 3, Schwitalla Hall.

Alan Felthous, M.D., will present “Combined Homicide-Suicide Part II with Consideration of Female Terrorist Bombers.”

Felthous, professor and director, of the Division of Forensic Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine. He is the senior editor of Behavioral Sciences and the Law, and author of numerous professional publications on forensic and legal psychiatry.

In 2017 American Academy of Psychiatry and Law (AAPL) presented Felthous with the Seymour Pollock Award for distinction in forensic psychiatry education and teaching.

Felthous has written and lectured widely on suicide and developed and implemented a jail suicide prevention policy that was effective in preventing jailhouse suicides, and has published several studies on suicide in jail and in prison. Felthous developed a classification of combined homicide-suicide, carried out research on homicide-suicide in Galveston County, Texas, and recently authored an article analyzing the role of gender in homicide-suicide. With SLU psychiatry residents, he is now updating the earlier classification of homicide-suicide.
