Kerry Daynes The Dark Side of the Mind

An eye-opening insight into the human psyche from a leading forensic psychologist.

Kerry Daynes has worked with some of the most complex and challenging criminals in prisons and secure hospitals, as well as victims of crime. A large part of her day job is working to reduce the impact of crime on society by delving into the psyche of the men and women convicted of brutal acts of violence, to try to understand the psychological processes behind the criminal act and provide treatment to set them on a path to becoming law-abiding citizens.

Drawing on her case files from the frontline, she offers readers an unforgettable insight into the psycholocical causes behind some of the most extreme froms of human behaviour, and what the incarceration of those who transgress says about society.

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.

I very much enjoyed the events I came to at the Dorchester  Literary festival. It was all very well organised. The sessions on The Seabird's cry, Bee Quest, and The Otter's Tale were brilliant.
