Retired Forensic Psychiatrist Dr Rhona Morrison will be joining us in Kirkliston Library to discuss her new book, I Don’t Talk To Dead Bodies: The curious encounters of a forensic psychiatrist.
I Don’t Talk to Dead Bodies shines a powerful, and surprisingly moving spotlight on the fascinating life of a forensic psychiatrist and the people she works with. It goes beyond the sensationalist headlines to show you just what happens in a world where mental illness can make good people do bad things.
Dr Rhona Morrison worked in the NHS for 32 years. Born and bred in Scotland, into a working-class family, she has a grounded approach to life, with a generous helping of humour. As a passionate advocate of the de-stigmatisation of mental health, she hopes her writing can shine a light on this specialist area of practise, so often impacted by negative attitudes and damaging assumptions.
Copies of the book will be available to buy on the night. Booking is not necessary and entry is free.
