'For those of us who play by the rule book, few things are more fascinating and rankling than those who choose to tear it apart. Some of the stories I tell here are heart-breaking, others enraging and some plain weird but what connects them is the insight they give us into the hu...man condition.' Kerry Daynes has worked with some of the most complex and challenging criminals in prisons and secure hospitals as well as the victims of crime. A large part of her day job is spent delving into the psyche of convicted men and women to try to understand what lies behind their actions and how to set them on the path to becoming law-abiding citizens. Welcome to the life of a forensic psychologist. No two days are the same. The people you work with are wildly unpredictable, sometimes frightening and often deeply frustrating. Drawing on her case files from the frontline, The Dark Side of the Mind offers readers an unforgettable insight into the psychological causes of some of the most extreme forms of human behaviour, and what the treatment and incarceration of those who transgress says about society.
