Unlocking Arkham: The Forensic Psychiatry of Batman's Rogues' Gallery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Back by popular demand! Broadcast Thought's original Comic-Con panel with updated information and insights! Arkham Asylum houses some of Gotham City's most disturbed villains. But are they truly "insane"? From the vantage point of forensic psychiatrists utilizing real-world psychiatric diagnostic criteria, explore the mental disorders that plague The Dark Knight's Rogues' Gallery. Probe the minds of villains such as Two-Face, Riddler, Mr. Zsasz, Maxie Zeus, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and others. Are these characters psychotic, or are they psychopaths? What's the difference? Learn as forensic psychiatrists H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen Kambam, M.D., and Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D. discuss the meaning of these terms and explain how criminal defendants are found "not guilty by reason of insanity." See how Arkham Asylum compares to a real-world forensic hospital. Discover that truth truly is stranger than fiction. Bring your questions, and join the experts as they unlock Arkham Asylum and possibly set some of its "inmates" free!
