Kerry Daynes, one of the most sought-after forensic psychologists in the business, has seen it all. She has worked with some of the most complex and challenging criminals as well as the victims of crime. Her work has taken her from police interview rooms and the witness box to the cells of maximum-security prisons and the wards of secure hospitals. Kerry shows us what it’s like to be an expert witness, how she copes with looking at crime scene photographs and the techniques she uses to spot when criminals are faking a mental health disorder.
Kerry’s frank and blackly funny memoir The Dark Side of the Mind: True Stories from My Life as a Forensic Psychologist is an unforgettable journey into the life of a forensic psychologist and gives us an unforgettable insight into the darker side of life. Learn about the psychological causes of some of the most extreme forms of human behaviour, and hear Kerry discuss what the treatment and incarceration of those who transgress says about society.
