Mad or Bad Workshop with Barbara Nadel

Mad or Bad Workshop with Barbara Nadel

Come along to this workshop to find out what it means to be mad or bad and whether wickedness exists?

How does the law and psychiatry decide whether someone who has committed a crime was sane or mentally unwell when he or she did the deed?

This is a complex issue where legal and medical definition meet and sometimes clash. It is also a subject which challenges our beliefs about the limits or otherwise, of sanity and insanity. Terms like ‘psychopath’ and ‘psychotic’ are used by many in ways that are unhelpful and do not reflect what those states really are.
