In Session with “The Silence of the Lambs” with Dr. Adam
Hello, Freudian Scripters. This week Dr. Sam & Dr. Fran discuss a classic psychological thriller, The Silence of the Lambs. This movie may have won a ton of awards, but would they win one for their portrayal of psychological themes? This week, the doctors are joined by an expert in forensic psychology—Dr. Adam Coffey. The doctors discuss serial killing, psychopathy, and whether the two are related. Dr. Adam also gives an introduction into forensic psychology and the “CSI effect.” And finally, we all know Hannibal as a psychopathic cannibal, but does he meet criteria for psychopathy? We play Diagnosis Bingo to find out! You don’t want Hannibal Lecter in your head, so pour yourself a nice glass of chianti, serve up some fava beans and listen to this week’s session!
