DEATH WISH
Inside the mind of a psychopathic killer with Jennifer Rees
At Brompton Cemetery Chapel on Saturday 19th October 2019 from 3:00 pm


The word “psychopath” comes from the Greek words for “mind” and “suffering”, but what causes a person to want to inflict suffering on others? In her talk Jennifer Rees will look into the brain patterns and behaviour of violent psychopaths, exploring different motivations for violence, using case studies of serial killers, some of who you may never have heard of before.

The talk will explain why so many psychopaths engage in sadistic behaviour and how it is that some killers can lead such normal lives, evading the suspicion of even their closest friends and family.

At the end of the talk you will be invited to take a screener for the condition, based on forensic profiling techniques. Might you secretly have psychopathic tendencies? Rest assured: all test results will be treated in the strictest confidentiality.

Tickets £12 including a delightful gin cocktail.
