Wanstead Book Festival: Sohom Das

Tuesday 26 September 2023 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Forensic psychiatrist Sohom Das has spent 15 years trying to understand, treat and rehabilitate dangerous people. His work takes him to high-security prisons and securely locked hospital wards across the country, as well as to courtrooms where he gives evidence as an expert witness. ‘The vast majority of psychiatric patients are not violent,’ he says. ‘The vast majority of violent offenders are not mentally ill. But when the two worlds collide, the results can be catastrophic.’ In In Two Minds, a revealing, honest and  – at times – humorous memoir, Dr Das shares stories from his work, and how he’s learned to live with mistakes when the worst happens.
