Nigel Blackwood

What's the talk about?

Criminal behaviour is inherently fascinating. Endless hours of TV and countless novels are written about it. Forensic psychiatrists spend their lives exploring the links between mental illness and crime.

Are we any closer to understanding why individuals are seriously violent toward others?

What treatments are available for such individuals? How sympathetic are the courts to mental illness defences?

What happens in secure hospitals and prisons?

Which novels and films get closest to the truth?

Nigel Blackwood is a clinical academic in Forensic Psychiatry, working at King's College London and in HMP Wandsworth.

£3 to cover expenses.

As it's our festive meeting, there will be treats. If you've been good.
