Professor John Gunn introduces the field of forensic psychiatry, which is the application of psychiatry within the criminal justice system. Using the case of a man who killed his wife during a post-seizure delusion, Gunn explains how psychiatrists help evaluate clients' fitness to stand trial, their level of responsibility, and the sentence that will be best for all.
