After unprecedented audience response to previous presentations, the doctors of Broadcast Thought, H. Eric Bender, M.D., Praveen R. Kambam, M.D., and Vasilis K. Pozios, M.D., return to San Diego Comic-Con to lead two panels.
On Thursday, July 12, 2012, from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm in Room 7AB , they team up with the star of TV’s Killer Instinct, Mark E. Safarik, M.S., V.S.M., FBI Ret., Supervisory Special Agent, Behavioral Analysis Unit, to present Zombies, Vampires, and Werewolves on Trial: The Forensic Psychiatry of the Dead, the Undead, and the Unlucky. The forensic psychiatrists determine whether these monsters are actually competent to stand trial for their killings or even not guilty by reason of insanity. The doctors offer fascinating real life medical and mental health takes on the lore of these flesh-eaters, blood suckers, and wild beasts, while Mr. Safarik compares the grisly behaviors of these fictional characters to those of real life predators.
Then, on Saturday, July 14, 2012, from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm, join Broadcast Thought again in Room 7AB as they present Unlocking Arkham: The Forensic Psychiatry of Batman’s Rogues’ Gallery. Applying real-world psychiatric diagnostic criteria, they explore the mental disorders that affect popular characters such as Two-Face, Harley Quinn, the Riddler, the Joker, and many more. The doctors examine the difference between psychotic and psychopathic villains, and in the process, boldly determine who truly belongs at Arkham Asylum.
