In his book, Dangerous Minds, Taj Nathan draws on his experience of more than two decades working as a forensic psychiatrist to explore the origins of serious violence. By presenting compassionate accounts of people whose lives have been shaped by aggression, Taj shows how in certain situations seriously violent behaviour can arise. Taj is a Chester based forensic psychiatrist and an academic at the University of Chester. He has published many academic texts in the areas of risk, offending and violence. This is his first book for a wider readership.

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

Our Lunchtime Lectures are videoed and archived for future viewing, by attending you give permission for us to do so – thanks!
