CelebSalon: Bandy X Lee, forensic psychiatrist
Wednesday, March 03, 2021, 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM
Registration is closed - Event is full
Bandy Xenobia Lee is a forensic psychiatrist with Yale University, and a specialist in violence prevention. In 2017, Dr. Lee attracted attention for organizing a conference at Yale on professional ethics surrounding the mental health of Donald Trump and the dangers—for our country—of his mental instability. In a 2021 article, entitled The ‘Shared Psychosis’ of Donald Trump and His Loyalists, Scientific American asked Lee to comment not only on how Trump has been able to create a cult of followers but also on what drives his seemingly cult-like followers. Dr. Lee has studied the anthropology of violence in East Africa, worked in maximum security prisons in the United States, and consulted widely on the prevention of violence. Her March 3rd discussion with DCV is an opportunity to better understand our history from the perspective of a professional with a deep understanding of violence and violence prevention.
