Dr Boo & Dr Brin Hodgskiss discuss the film the Silence of the Lambs from a psychological perspective. Dr Hodgskiss talks of his studies of serial killers and compares these to the portrayal of killers and profiling in the film; and we discuss the characters and how mental health professionals are represented.

Here are some links to some of the concepts discussed in this podcast:

We talked in the show about personality disorders and psychopathy. This is further described here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7236162/ .

We also discussed how “personality disorders” may be a defence against trauma which is examined in this paper https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5980986/
Finally, two papers written by Dr Hodgskiss :
