The Open University is delighted to support The Mind and Body of Murder: Dr Marie Cassidy and Dr Sohom Das at Bloody Scotland 2022, chaired by author and Clinical Psychologist, Dr Chris Merritt.
Beyond the Tape recounts the remarkable career of Dr Marie Cassidy, from working-class Glasgow to becoming Ireland’s head forensic pathologist. She takes us beyond the police line, explaining the intricacies of solving modern crimes, and tells extraordinary stories from a place so few are privileged and talented enough to go – beyond the tape.
In Two Minds is the grimly fascinating and eye-opening memoir from forensic psychiatrist Dr Sohom Das, a man charged with treating and rehabilitating those labelled as the criminally insane. His career has taken him from high-security prisons to secure hospital wards to talk to highly dangerous clientele – detailing his most extreme and heart-breaking cases.
Tickets are £10 (£9 concession), available from the Bloody Scotland website.
